Book excerpt/Synopsis: This classic, bestselling memoir tells of the often heart-stopping adventures of early 20th-century explorers and photographers Osa and Martin Johnson - now in a new edition featuring additional photos and personal letters from the Johnsons to friends and family. Osa Johnson's memoir details her adventures alongside her husband Martin, an explorer and pioneering photographer. These two kids from Kansas sailed to Borneo, Kenya, and the Congo in the early part of the 20th century, where, with Martin holding the camera and Osa wielding the gun, they documented the indigenous people and wildlife they encountered in groundbreaking films such as "Among the Cannibals of the South Pacific" (1918) and "Simba" (1928). Osa's engaging and exciting text is complemented by scores of the dramatic black-and-white photos that made the couple famous. After Martin's death in 1937, Osa continued their work alone, I Married Adventure was first published in 1940 and became the bestselling nonfiction book of that year.
