Out of Eden Walk

Out of Eden Walk

Paul Salopek, a National Geographic Fellow and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, is conducting an experiment in slow journalism by retracing the journey of some of our human ancestors’ migration beyond Africa. He began his multiyear journey in 2013 in Ethiopia, and will walk around 33,800 kilometers (21,000 miles) ending at the southern tip of South America. Along the way, he is walking with guides, stopping to speak with local people and document their stories, and sharing his experiences along the way.
