The Darién Gap is a place of legend. It is an almost impregnable strip of swamp, jungle and cloud forest between the vast landmasses of North and South America. Stories of abduction and murder there are rife and in recent years more people have successfully climbed Everest or trekked to the South Pole than have crossed the Darién Gap. In 2000, Tom Hart Dyke, a young botanist, set off to Central America with one thing on his mind: orchids. Unbeknown to Tom, another young explorer, Paul Winder, was backpacking through the area at that time. Pure chance brought them together in northern Mexico; they formed an instant bond and their fate was sealed. Ignoring a final, succinct warning from the Lonely Planet guide - 'Don't even think about it!' - Tom and Paul set off into the Darién: Tom in search of orchids, Paul in search of adventure. They would find plenty of each. For six days they made good progress. Then, just hours away from Colombia, the dream ended and the horror began. Paul and Tom were ambushed by guerrillas who were to hold them hostage for the next nine months. From that day on, their survival was a matter of extraordinary endurance, incredible ingenuity and not a little good luck...

Tom Hart Dyke is a botanist whose wild enthusiasm for plants in a Channel 4 To the Ends of the Earth documentary led Kathryn Flett of the Observer to describe him as 'the new David Bellamy'. Paul Winder is an inveterate traveller and explorer. When he isn't hacking his way through the jungle or climbing a moutain, he works in the City of London. Tom lives in Kent and Paul lives in London.
