"My expedition is over. Today we saw people," wrote a teenage Majka Burhardt while canoeing the Arctic Ocean. In Alpinist 32, "Searching for Namibia", Burhardt examines the notion of wilderness and adventure in a land called "wild" by foreign explorers and "home" by the people living there for more than 4,000 years.

Alpinist had the chance to talk to Burhardt about adventure, wilderness and the need to explore these two elements. Click in to read our discussion about "wonder quotients" and what constitutes wild.
