- Author BiographyCHRISTOPHER SOMERVILLE spent his childhood in a remote village in rural Gloucestershire, where he reveled in the freedom to roam the woods, fields, and riverbanks. This upbringing gave him a lifelong love of walking in the open air and a taste for the quieter corners of the British countryside. Since then he has written 40 books and writes regularly for The Times (as Walking Correspondent) and other national publications about his travels in the hidden corners of Britain and Europe. ALISON WRIGHT, a New York-based documentary photographer, has traveled the globe photographing endangered cultures and people. She is published in numerous National Geographic books and publications, is a recipient of the Dorothea Lange Award in Documentary Photography, and a two-time winner of the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award. In 2000, Wright's life was nearly cut short in a bus accident on a remote jungle road in Laos. Her memoir, Learning to Breathe: One Woman's Journey of Spirit and Survival, chronicles her years of rehabilitation and her ongoing determination to recover and continue traveling the world as a photojournalist.
