New Book About Galen's Last Expedition

The Big Open by Rick RidgewayIn June 2002, Rick Ridgeway, Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, and the late renowned wilderness photographer Galen Rowell set out to discover the migration route of the chiru (the tibetan antelope). A feat twice attempted by eminent wildlife biologist George Schaller – first in four-wheel-drive vehicles and later by camel caravan – the team resolved to use their outdoor skills, prototype aluminum rickshaws, and their own two feet to solve this wildlife riddle.

Available May, 2004, The Big Open: On Foot Across Tibet's Chang Tang by Rick Ridgeway recounts this both unprecedented and urgent expedition and features photography by Galen Rowell and a foreword by Conrad Anker. For more information, please visit the Mountain Light Book Store.
