In the 10 years since his first story appeared in the debut issue of National Geographic Adventure, journalist and photographer Tom Clynes has covered Ebola outbreaks and armed conflicts in Central Africa, retraced Edmund Hillary's climbs in New Zealand, learned to fly in the Australian outback, and chased the ghosts of outlaws and freedom fighters in Iceland, Jamaica and Vanuatu. In this stunningly visual presentation, he'll bring us along on assignment to the ends of the Earth. This event is co-sponsored by the Knight-Wallace Fellows.

Tom Clynes is a contributing editor for National Geographic Adventure and author of the book Wild Planet. An alumnus of the University of Michigan, he has returned to campus this academic year as a Knight-Wallace Fellow.
