From the bestselling author of Jurassic Park, Timeline, and Sphere comes a deeply personal memoir full of fascinating adventures as he travels everywhere from the Mayan pyramids to Kilimanjaro. Fueled by a powerful curiosity-and by a need to see, feel, and hear, firsthand and close-up-Michael Crichton's journeys have carried him into worlds diverse and compelling-swimming with mud sharks in Tahiti, tracking wild animals through the jungle of Rwanda. This is a record of those travels-an exhilarating quest across the familiar and exotic frontiers of the outer world, a determined odyssey into the unfathomable, spiritual depths of the inner world. It is an adventure of risk and rejuvenation, terror and wonder, as exciting as Michael Crichton's many masterful and widely heralded works of fiction.

Professional reviews

"In this 1988 autobiographical work, narrator Christopher Lane portrays the late writer Crichton as a thoughtful and analytical observer of human behavior and a world traveler, scuba diver, mountain climber, writer, and filmmaker, among other things. As Crichton encounters various languages and dialects, Lane doesn't stress them but slides through them subtly. The first part of the book is about Crichton's medical training and his departure from the profession; subsequently, he talks about his worldwide travels, moving finally into his exploration of and opinions on paranormal phenomena. Listener interest is heightened by the way Lane puts it all in front of us--quietly but with fine effect. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
