  • Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA (1888PressRelease) March 05, 2008 - Such activities include skydiving, climbing mountains, swimming with sharks and trekking across frozen tundra and glaciers, to name a few.

    Gary Garner, world traveler and author of the new book Through the Eyes of Madness, recently returned from a five-year expedition across all seven continents, where he experienced extreme adventures of his own.

    Throughout his trek across the highs and lows of the globe, Garner has had the opportunity to experience a life that most people only read about.

    For the past five years, Garner has literally been homeless and without “essential” material possessions. While roaming across the map, in search of a simple life, he experienced:
     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 at the heights of Mt. Everest
     Being ambushed and robbed in Costa Rica by very unusual suspects
     Countless other harrowing escapes that illustrate valuable and moving life lessons

    Garner kept countless detailed journals and notes, and crafted amazing artwork throughout his exploration. The author’s modern adventure tale is illustrated with scores of photos and illustrations.

    Each chapter of Through the Eyes of Madness is richly detailed with true life-and-death adventures. The author continually put himself in situations which were seemingly un-survivable, and readers get to go along for the ride.

    The book also has an intriguing twist: 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 it,” admits 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.”
