Danny was first fascinated by how humans have adapted to life in extremes after visiting the stunning island of Iceland. The people there had learnt how to co-exist and respect the environment. It was easy to see why it was one of the happiest places in the world to live.
Danny wrote this book to explore how humans have adapted, and thrived, to live in extremes. There are so many places to discover on this amazing planet. So, get out there and get exploring!
