Dan Eldon: The Art of Life by Jennifer New & Kathy Eldon: (Chronicle Books, 2001)
Description: Only 22 when he lost his life on assignment in Somalia, photojournalist Dan Eldon left behind much more than the journals that became the basis for Chronicle's best-seller The Journey is the Destination. He left a lifetime of adventures that continue to inspire. Raised in Kenya, he took numerous expeditions across Africa that helped him to understand and love the continent. Through his safaris and benevolent crusades - and with interludes of study and work in the US and London, and trips around the world - he crafted a philosophy of curiosity, creativity, adventure and charity. Intensely visual, like the life it describes, Dan Eldon: The Art of Life is more than a biography. It is an exploration of one man's will to take in everything life has to offer; an example of a life lived for and art experienced as life."
