Africa Trek is the incredible journey of husband and wife Alex and Sonia Poussin. For three years the French couple walked 8,700 miles across Africa, from the Cape of Good Hope to the Sea of Galilee. During their journey, which they personally filmed, they endured fatigue, extreme thirst, blazing sun, prowling hyenas, malaria and more.


A runaway bestseller when first published in France in 2004, Africa Trek has only recently been translated into English and published by local Portland publisher Inkwater Press.


The Poussin's epic journey has also been made into a twelve-part miniseries, currently being aired on PBS in over 200 markets across the United States.


Books and videos available for purchase and signing.
