Andrew Stevenson



Andrew Stevenson has spent over five years and over 1,000 hours on or in the water observing North Atlantic humpback whales off Bermuda. Born in Canada, he spent his childhood in Hong Kong, India, Scotland, Malaysia and Singapore. As an economist working for the United Nations Development Programme, he was assigned to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, where he remained after his two-year stint, obtaining his pilot's licence and starting a safari company in the Selous Game Reserve.

After five years he returned to North America, but continued to travel widely in Africa and Asia as a consultant in international development for the Canadian, Norwegian and Swedish governments. His work on humpback whales has appeared in The Explorers Journal of the New York Explorers Club and he has co-authored scientific papers for the Society of Marine Mammology on his groundbreaking observations and data on the North Atlantic humpback.

Andrew is the author of A Nepalese Journey, a photographic volume, and five travel narratives on Nepal, New Zealand, Norway and Australia. He lives in Bermuda with his Kiwi wife Annabel and their daughters Elsa and Somers.

Endless summer days and vast wilderness: Norway is an outdoor paradise almost too good to be true. Andrew Stevenson's affectionate luminous account reveals the magical appeal of this Scandinavian wonderland as he walks and cycles (and gets stuck in the odd snowdrift) across the country from Oslo to Bergen Staying at clifftop farms, climbing the country's highest mountains or taking a side trip far to the north of the Arctic circle, Andrew gets under Scandinavia's skin as only someone who has lived there and speaks the language can. As he introduces a land he loves to the new love of his life, he comes to peace with a country of light-and darkness.

A seasoned traveller, travel writer Andrew Stevenson is unafraid of the unconventional. Whilst most people visiting Australia tread the well worn path from the Sydney Opera House to Cairns up the East Coast, Andrew disappeared into the Australian outback in search of the original Australians - the Aboriginal People."If you want to meet them nowadays, you've got to go beyond the black stump!" He was told. Going where few have gone before, Andrew delves into the Outback without fear. Drinking in bars with people even the locals avoid, asking questions that we all want to hear the answers to.Written with humour and compassion his powers of observation and enquiring mind draw out a frankness that is sometimes shocking but something from which we can all learn. Beyond the Black Stump: Travels around Australia is no ordinary tale of an intrepid traveller, it is an extraordinary account of an Australia that we have not seen before.
