The Backyard Adventurer


SKU: 5222331 Category: Tag:


Meaningful and pointless expeditions, self-experiments and the value of other people’s junk After years of adventuring around the globe – running, kayaking, hitchhiking, exploring – Beau Miles came back to his block in country Victoria. Staying put for the first time in years, Beau developed a new kind of lifestyle as the Backyard Adventurer. Whether it was walking 90km to work with no provisions, building a canoe paddle out of scavenged scrap or running along a disused railway line through properties, blackberry thickets and past inquiring police officers, Beau has been finding ways to satisfy his adventurous spirit close to home. This book is about conscious experimentation with adventure, making meaning and inspiration out of tins of beans, bits of rubbish and elbow grease. Beau’s backyard exploits are funny, authentic, insightful and being copied all over the world. YouTuber, new dad, and self-described oddball who needs to shower more, Beau is what happens when you cross Bear Grylls with Casey Neistat. With a PhD in Outdoor Education, a string of successful films under his belt and a boundless passion for discovery, Beau is a hell of a storyteller.
