Safari as a Way of Life by Jennifer New: (Chronicle Books, 2011)
Description: Photojournalist Dan Eldon left behind much more than the astonishing illustrated journals that would form The Journey is the Destination when he lost his life at age twenty-two while on assignment in Somalia. He also bequeathed a life story that has inspired students, teachers, artists and creative activists - as well as a forthcoming film, an apparel line and the Spring 2011 collection from Tom's Shoes. Raised in Kenya, Dan grew up with a unique outlook on life. Through adventurous safaris and benevolent crusades around the world, he crafted a philosophy of curiosity, creativity and charity. This unique visual biography showcases previously unpublished artwork from Dan's acclaimed journals, letters and snapshots that take readers on a journey through Dan's life and beyond, exploring the impact made by this remarkable artist on everyone who has encountered his story.
