The extraordinary life of photojournalist, artist, and avid adventurer Dan Eldon inspired a bestselling book, a foundation to support creative activism, and now a major feature film. Gathering together over 200 pages from Eldon's journals, this revised edition of the critically acclaimed book features a new foreword by Kweku Mandela, a new afterword by Alicia Dougherty, and approximately 20 new pieces of art. It is the legacy of a young artist killed by an angry mob in Somalia just as his creative powers were beginning to be recognized by himself and others. Through these elaborately collaged and colorful pages, Eldon's journey will continue to inspire many future generations to come.
