The story of Mackintosh's journey around the coast of Baja California, a rugged 800 mile long peninsula on the west side of Mexico. Walking all the way and carrying only essential supplies, he soon learned the art of desert survival. He suffered sunstroke, scorpion stings, hunger, dehydration, attacks by rabid animals and a shark bite. He aims to give encouragement to all who have dreamed of striking out alone in a remote part of the world.

Amazing... If you're looking for adventure, this is it! Author Graham MacKintosh leads the reader through an amazing tale of adventure, survival and spiritual journey. Simply written, it probably won't make any bestseller/book-o-the month lists. My guess is (like a van Gogh painting) long after we're gone, this epic novel will re-emerge and shine. Brilliantly.
