  • Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA (1888PressRelease) March 11, 2008 - Les Stroud, host of the hit show Survivorman, teaches people how to survive the most seemingly impossible locations—the African plains, Taroka Arm in Alaska, and the Kalahari Desert, to name a few.

    But as exciting as this show is to watch, the reality of getting stuck in one of these remote locations is unlikely.

    Gary Garner, world traveler and author of the new book Through the Eyes of Madness, recently returned from a journey spanning the highs and lows of the globe.

    “In a spontaneous act, I abandoned all of my worldly possessions and became focused on touring the world as a penniless pauper,” says Mr. Garner. “I just quit my job and embarked on a global journey with nothing more than my backpack, and I never looked back.”

    While roaming each of the seven continents in search of a simpler life, Mr. Garner found himself in many dangerous situations, including:
    • Witnessing a brutal murder on the South China Sea
    • The wrath of an angry mob in the midst of a Nepalese civil war
    • His own near-death experience at the heights of Mt. Everest
    • Being ambushed and robbed in Costa Rica by very unusual suspects
    • Countless other harrowing escapes that illustrated valuable and moving life lessons

    Throughout his exploration, Mr. Garner kept countless detailed journals and notes, and crafted amazing artwork. His modern adventure tale is illustrated with scores of photos and illustrations.

    Each chapter of his new book is rich with details of his real life-and-death adventures. Mr. Garner continually put himself in situations that were seemingly un-survivable—and lived to tell about them.

    Through the Eyes of Madness also has an intriguing twist: Mr. Garner has a mysterious surprise waiting for anyone who can decipher the encrypted codes in his journal, which point to physical clues planted around the world. From beginning to end, the book is laced with a visual and mathematical secret code—but unlike its fictional cousins, this book’s secret is very real.

    “These past few years have been so fantastical and life-altering that even I have trouble believing they happened,” admits Mr. Garner. “But that’s why I kept the journals and constructed the book in the way that I did. Now, others can share in the adventure.”
