About the story-
David has sailed over 65,000 nautical miles across the globe including below the Antarctic Circle, three times across the Atlantic, six times over the Arctic Circle, twice through the Northwest Passage and completed a 28,000-mile circumnavigation of the North and South American Continents. During this time, Thoreson has accumulated some 150,000 photographs and over 600 pages of personal journal entries documenting his journeys.
Over The Horizon is an autobiographical photography book. Thoreson has been called “The Accidental Explorer” because he is a sailor from Iowa and ventured to the sea with a “salty” southern Minnesota farmer.

He is now an advocate for ocean and wilderness protection along with a more sustainable future for generations of explorers yet to come. Over the Horizon is his beautiful and compelling life story...
