Over The Horizon is Officially Launched- davidthoreson.com

One Island One Ocean is officially sold out and out of print although one can still find a few copies of the book floating about. This couple years has been a very interesting time in life. I have transitioned from an exploring sailor into a professional speaker and lecturer. I am enjoying a new role of sharing my stories of exploration of the earth's edges, leading to my confirmation and discovery of a fast-paced changing climate. Not that I am enjoying the fact we are changing the earth's environment and that we have entered the Anthropocene, the Age of Man, but it is a very exciting time to be alive. Since we now live in this time it makes sense to launch a very ambitious book project, "Over the Horizon: Exploring the Edges of a Changing Planet."
At the age of 55 I am not getting any younger. I have many stories and over 150,000 photographs of planet earth. This project will force me to weed out the trivial and compose an autobiographical book of photos and stories that I hope can have an impact and leave a mark.

Thanks to my team. We are making it happen. Moving forward into a new era is very exciting...

Breaking News, March 1, 2016, the book is now officially launched!! You can pre-order the book here with a special offering. The book will physically ship late autumn for perfect holiday season delivery. Thank you all very much. It's an honor to be able to share my story with you. Cheers!

Project Art at the University of Iowa

My latest exhibit is on display through April 21st at the University of Iowa's Hospital and Clinics Gallery III in Iowa City. If you are in the area (and hopefully not sick) please stop by for a visit. The Galleries of Project Art are some of the most visited anywhere in the US as you can expect. There is a captive audience looking for positive distractions from loved ones being at the clinics for medical reasons. What a brilliant idea for a series of gallery placements!
The U of I will give tours, tell my story and the story of other artists on display there also. Really fun, really great! Thank you to the U of I and their great staff for making this happen.
