Dan Eldon: Safari as a Way of Life by Dan Eldon

. Raised in Kenya, Dan grew up with a unique outlook on life. Through adventurous safaris and benevolent crusades around the world, he crafted a philosophy of curiosity, creativity, adventure, and charity. His journals, photographs, letters, and relationships continue to speak to young people even 15 years after his death. Targeted to the teen audience, but also full of new material for long-time Dan fans, this unique biography of a remarkable artist and adventurer is packed full of previously unpublished artwork, letters, and snapshots. The text takes readers on a journey through Dan's life, from arriving in Africa at age 7, to the fateful day in July 1992 when he was stoned to death, and beyond, exploring Dan's impact on everyone who has encountered his story. Inspired by Dan's own innovative ideas, this book includes special extras such as stickers, an accordion fold-out of postcards, a T-shirt iron-on, and replicated documents.
