About the book:
In the tradition of the historic journals kept by explorers such as Lewis and Clark, Dr. David Livingstone and Captain James Cook comes the adventure series "TRAVELS WITH GANNON AND WYATT."
From Africa to the South Pacific, twin brothers Gannon and Wyatt have traveled to all corners of the globe. The journals, photographs and video compiled on these expeditions provided the foundation for this action-packed adventure series. In this volume, Gannon and Wyatt arrive in Botswana for an African safari to find that a poacher has shot and wounded a lioness. They set off into the wild in the hopes of saving the mother and her cubs before the poacher finishes the job.
The real-life Gannon and Wyatt are normal 15-year old twins, except for their extraordinary travel schedules. Since Botswana, the boys have traveled to Egypt, Greenland, Iceland, The Great Bear Rainforest, and beyond for future volumes in the series.
They are passionate about the book and about the Youth Exploration Society, which they founded with the authors, after their experiences in Botswana. The Society was created to inspire youth to do their part to make the world a better place. It informs members of ways they can help people, environments and species at risk and promotes a better understanding of geography, cultures and wildlife.
These books are fun! My eight-year-old saw my copy and immediately stole it. I had to wait for him to finish before I could read it. The highest praise I can give the book is that my son LOVED it! He wants me to buy them all - now! I highly recommend these books for those who love adventure. The format of the story, told through journal entries of both boys, is riveting and real. I can't wait for the next one! And what I especially appreciate is that for every book purchased before December 31, 2010, a book will be donated to an organization that supports literacy.
I have two hardback copies of Travels with Gannon and Wyatt: Botswana to give away. Each book includes a DVD with safari footage and interviews with Gannon and Wyatt.
