We set out on foot early this morning, for a tour...

We’re not speaking of the documentary filmmaker, but rather the charismatic naturalist who leads Zegrahm expeditions around the world. Moore’s most recent, an Alaskan overland adventure this past July, earned enthusiastic praise, particularly for his skills in directing the cast of thousands...
