9780984915514: The Seed Buried Deep (The Expedition Trilogy, Book 2): True Story of the First Human-Powered Circumnavigation of the Earth (Volume 2)

When adventurer Jason Lewis regained consciousness beside a busy Colorado highway, lower limbs shattered by a hit-and-run driver, he knew he was lucky to be alive. But would he ever walk again, let alone finish crossing North America by inline skates?

So begins part two of The Expedition, a stirring saga of hope, determination, and the kindness of strangers as Jason, taken in by the people of Pueblo, spent nine months in rehabilitation, legs pieced together with metal rods, before returning to the spot he was run over and continuing on.

Inspired by the journey, others sought to join, including a middle-aged mother-cum-schoolteacher yearning to see the world. For the expedition wasn’t just a line on a map. The real expedition was the seed buried deep in the heart of anyone who has ever dreamed of knowing what lies beyond their valley, and of embarking upon a grand adventure to find out...

Voted FOREWORD REVIEWS’ Book of the Year.

From the Inside Flap:

"An adventure of two lifetimes."--SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"Last great first for circumnavigation."--THE SUNDAY TIMES
"I believe it is important in our era of cars, trains and aeroplanes that we are reminded what human beings can achieve using their own strength and resources."--HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA
"Two broken legs would be a trip-ender for me ... An incredible amount of stamina."--JAY LENO, THE TONIGHT SHOW

"We need the Lewises of this life. It is good to know that such people exist, have always existed, doubtless always will exist. It does our hearts good to hear about them."--SIMON BARNES, THE TIMES
"The Expedition speaks powerfully of a reality most people need to hear. It takes noble thinking on behalf of the planet, a love for life, and a soul full of dreams to accomplish a truly great journey. His journey is not great. It's freakin' epic!"--LES STROUD, SURVIVORMAN
