Michael Buckley (2)
A nomad at heart, Michael Buckley thrives on adventuring in remote corners of the globe--rappelling through the treetops of Costa Rica, hunting elusive mammals in the wilds of Bhutan (with a camera), diving with manta rays, kayaking in Cambodia, or trekking in Tibet. To get off the track, he is keen on self-propelled transport methods--mountain-biking, hiking, kayaking and diving.
He is author of a dozen books, including Meltdown in Tibet (a shocking environmental expose), Eccentric Explorers (winner of Biography category, National Indie Excellence Awards, USA, 2009), Shangri-La: a Guide to the Himalayan Dream (themed around the Himalayan utopia) and Tibet: the Bradt Travel Guide. Three ebooks published as Kindle editions are Eccentric Explorers; Travels in the Tibetan World (travel narrative, winner of Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award, USA, 2003); and Beastly Encounters (tracking near-mythical creatures to their lairs). Although he travels world-wide, he is especially drawn to Southeast Asia and the Himalayan region.
