Looking For Adventure or How I Found Myself in the Lost Land of the Volcano Synopsis

How do you become an explorer? It's a question every child has asked. And, Steve Backshall was no different. But after a rainy-day visit to an exhibition of artefacts from Papua New Guinea, it was a question that began to obsess the seven-year old Backshall. But surely he'd been born a century too late? And yet through boundless enthusiasm, determination and a refusal to accept defeat, Backshall was soon carrying business cards from National Geographic describing him as their 'Adventurer in Residence' The vast, untamed wildness of Papua New Guinea was where Backshall forged his unlikely path. From crushing lows of early failures to the extraordinary highs of the BBC's Lost Land of the Volcano expedition, it was this dark island which gave Backshall his opportunity.
