Om Dare to Do

SHORTLISTED FOR THE EDWARD STANFORD ADVENTURE TRAVEL BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD On 1 April 2011, rower and adventurer Sarah Outen set off in her kayak from Tower Bridge for France. Her aim was simple: to circle the globe entirely under her own steam - cycling, kayaking and rowing across Europe, Asia, the Pacific, North America, the Atlantic and eventually home. A year later, Sarah was plucked from the Pacific ocean amid tropical storm Mawar, her boat broken, her spirit even more so. But that wasn't the end. Despite ill health and depression, giving up was not an option. So Sarah set off once more to finish what she had started, becoming the first woman to row solo from Japan to Alaska, as well as the first woman to row the mid-Pacific from West to East. She kayaked the treacherous Aleutian chain and cycled North America, before setting out on the Atlantic, despite the risk of another row-ending storm... Dare to Do is more than an adventure story. It is a story of the kindness of strangers and the spirit of travel; a story of the raw power of nature, of finding love in unexpected places, and of discovering your inner strength. It is about trying and failing, and trying again, and about how, even when all seems lost, you can find yourself.

Like Wild - only Wilder. Her natural charisma, talent for storytelling and unrivalled persistence sets Sarah Outen apart. She is the top female adventurer of the 21st Century - nobody else comes close. Sarah is an honest, open, courageous and inspiring person.. . and has a contagious love for life. I can't wait for her book. An epic feat. Definitely mad. Definitely marvellous. A seriously tough expedition. A gripping adventure story that is rare in its courage and rarer still in the way it feels fresh and contemporary. This is much more than a tale of a journey round our planet. This is Sarah's story of being able to dig deep when it feels like everything is against you. Sarah Outen prefaces her epic trip around the world under her own steam with a fabulous sentence: "The years ahead became some of the most vivid, treasured and, at times, the most difficult of my life. But all I knew is all we ever know - that I knew nothing about how the story would unfold." Who could fail to read on? Dare to Do chronicles a journey many readers will have mulled over at various points, but Outen had the courage to tackle it. The story of Outen's indomitable pursuit of her objective to its conclusion, written with breathtaking matter of factness. There is only one Sarah Outen. A unique blend of powerful female athlete and silly friend.
