For our sixth official Outside Beyond Books Club pick, we followed explorer Kate Harris in her memoir, Lands of Lost Borders: A Journey on the Silk Road. The book follows her journey from a daydreaming kid at space camp, to a modern Marco Polo bikepacking the globe. In our Facebook group, we’ve been chatting with you about Hariss’s travels and what it means to be a modern explorer.
Last week, Outside features editor Elizabeth Hightower Allen sat down with Harris to talk about risk-taking, outer space, and the adventurous women she admires (with a surprise appearance from her dog).
Listen to their conversation here.
