About the Author

HELEN THAYER has skied to the magnetic North Pole, lived among wolves in Alaska, kayaked in the Amazon, walked across the Sahara, and represented three countries as a track and field athlete. She is the author of Polar Dream and Three Among the Wolves and the recipient of countless awards. Thayer was named "One of the Great Explorers of the 20th Century" by National Geographic and is the president of Adventure Classroom, an international educational project.


Walking the Gobi captures the determination, the exhaustion, the sublime beauties and the cruel realities of [Helen Thayer's] expedition, as well as discoveries that emerge from immersing [oneself] in a forbidding landscape... Throughout the book, Thayer writes of adventure on a page-turning scale that is simultaneously impossible to put down, but at times-almost too nerve wracking to continue reading.-- "Rocky Mountain Outlook"
