Award-winning author Jonathan Waterman is visiting Big Sky to present his journey from adventurer to conservationist at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center.
On Friday, May 1 at 7 p.m., Waterman will give an hour-long presentation called, “Evolution of an Adventurer.” The talk encapsulates his book, “Northern Exposures,” which elucidates Waterman’s career as a journalist, from ducking avalanches near the Gulf of Alaska and following an aerial wolf poacher, to kayaking across the Arctic.
By utilizing images, video and storytelling, Waterman will detail his experiences as a mountaineer and wilderness traveler, while paying it forward as a conservationist.
Waterman began photographing on his expeditions 30 years ago, but is mainly known as a writer. He has starred in, filmed, and written documentaries for television, including “The Logan Challenge,” “Surviving Denali,” “Odyssey Among the Inuit,” “ANWR Trek,” and “Chasing Water.”
