Chris Long was born in 1991 and grew up two days' hike from the nearest road, at Gorge River on the wild West Coast of New Zealand. After seventeen years living with his family in remote isolation, he left home to attend school in Wanaka. On completing his education, he set off to explore as much of the world as possible, travelling to sixty countries on six continents and taking a variety of jobs, including teaching extreme survival skills in Antarctica, working as a dog musher with huskies in arctic Norway, and crewing on a small yacht sailing through the Northwest Passage. Chris's father, Robert 'Beansprout' Long, and mother, Catherine Stewart, each published best selling memoirs, A Life on Gorge River (2010) and A Wife on Gorge River (2012). This is Chris's first book.
