The gripping and redemptive story of how an American boy went looking for adventure and wound up trying to save the world
Stefan Templeton is a true Renaissance man with an insatiable thirst for risk. Before he was twenty-one, Templeton had hunted in Burgundy, brawled in Oxford, served as a medicine man on Colombia, escaped death in the Amazon, and trained to be a deep-sea diver on Cousteau’s Calypso. In this biography that reads like a thrilling adventure novel, readers accompany Templeton through the United States, Europe, South America, Japan, and Southeast Asia—chronicling the amazing life of a playboy, jewel thief, warrior, and finally a hero who finds a focus in humanitarian relief work in some of the bleakest corners of the globe.
