The Lovereading4Kids comment

March 15 Non-Fiction Book of the Month There’s a huge amount of information, and inspiration, contained in this rucksack-pocket-sized guide. Author and real-life explorer Justin Miles covers all the basics, including essential kit and how to pack it, and the key survival skills - lighting fires, tying knots, using a compass (there’s even one attached to the cover). He also describes the challenges of real life exploring in the world’s extreme climates, quoting examples from his own travels and from history. The information is clearly laid out, and the anecdotes and true life stories are fascinating. Justin comes across as exactly the kind of bloke it would be fun to trek with across the Arctic. Guaranteed to put kids in the mood for outdoor activities. ~ Andrea Reece

His adventures include exploring the Arctic, climbing mountains, exploring deserts and hacking his way through jungles. All of Justin's experiences have been used to support charities and to fuel various education projects.

Justin turned his passion for adventure into his profession after a car accident in 1999 resulted in brain injuries which left him having to learn to walk and talk again from scratch. It was during his recovery that he decided that when he recovered he would become a 'full time' explorer and use his experiences to support charities and inspire children to learn through innovative education programmes.
