Dreams for the young adventurer
The true story of one man’s quest around the world on a bicycle seeking the meaning of life.
To help make this book available to low-income schools, I've decided to publish it online one frequently asked question at a time. The print edition will still be easier to read; additionally it comes with a teacher's guide and classroom activities to help students turn their dreams into reality. Read online >>>

Synopsis: This easy-to-read edition features 236 photos and illustrations, answers to over 225 frequently asked questions, and new humorous short stories so that you can re-imagine Scott’s quest. Perfect for teachers and students as part of the required non-fiction book reading for the Common Core Curriculum.
In fact, the whole book is a new perspective on the highlights and lowlights of the adventure—from dying of dehydration to being imprisoned in Zimbabwe to climbing Mt. Everest—and a whole philosophy of life.
One of the mysteries Scott discovered was that everyone everywhere, regardless of age, race, gender or culture, asked the same questions in a similar order, proving we all share the same fears and joys and doubts and hopes. Falling Uphill flows in a similar order, and serves as a metaphor for your own journey through life, whether that be an adventurer, artist, scientist or whatever you dream to be.
This special edition features an ancient "magical" secret to making your dream a reality, and several exercises (and additional surprises online) to help guide you through the creative process—by the time you’ve finished this book, not only will you have dreamed impossible dreams, but you’ll have taken the first step on your new adventure.
Scott Stoll lives a life the rest of us only dream of.
If you read the first book, you'll love this brand new re-imagined book suitable for all ages, featuring:
Inspire your friends and family to dream, if not inspire yourself.
This is the young adventurer's edtion. The first book looks similar, but only has 132 photos and illustrations, and a lot more words.
