When he lost his life at age 22 while on assignment in Somalia, photojournalist Dan Eldon left behind much more than the astonishing illustrated journals that would form the basis of The Journey Is the Destination. He left behind a life story that has inspired students, teachers, artists, and activists, as well as a forthcoming film. Raised in Kenya, Dan grew up with a unique outlook on life. Through adventurous safaris and benevolent crusades around the world, he crafted a philosophy of curiosity, creativity, and charity. Showcasing personal letters, snapshots, and artwork from his acclaimed journals, this teen-appropriate visual biography takes young readers on a profound, impactful journey through Dan's life and beyond.
