Gregory and Jessica Cheek chronicle their memorable safaris in “Expedition Cheek”

It is a cold and windy day, a hunter stalks his quarry through the grass, careful to be downwind lest he be scented. He glasses the terrain and, upon finding his prey, methodically positions himself. Crouched with rifle shouldered, gazing through the telescopic sight, crosshairs upon the target, he gently squeezes the trigger between a breath and a heartbeat. The crack of gunfire resounds through the wilderness, the quarry falls, and the hunter moves to claim his prize. Such are the exploits of husband and wife adventurers Gregory and Jessica Cheek, as chronicled in Expedition Cheek, a picture book compilation of their hunts spanning many years and quite a few continents.

The authors have travelled the world in search of the most thrilling game and the most prized trophies. They have gone to the untamed savannas of Africa, teeming with buffaloes, wildebeest and stalking big cats; to the chilly expanses of Alaska where deer and elk roam and bears prowl; and even the alligator-infested swamps of Florida and the remote Pacific islands where mountain antelope frolic. With scope and rifle, they have pitted their mettle against the deadliest creatures of these distant lands, and despite some close calls and narrow escapes, the Cheeks have emerged victorious and now present their exploits to readers everywhere.

The memories of the hunt are not the only things the Cheeks have brought back from their intercontinental sojourns. Recollections of the exotic locales they visited, the amazing people they met and befriended, who accompanied them in their excursions and aided them, and, of course, the unique experience of becoming immersed in nature, so far away from the tedium of civilization, are among the gems contained within this book. Moreover, and perhaps most importantly, Expedition Cheek conveys the intimate and unbreakable bond between husband and wife, and their family and loved ones as well, and the thrills they felt during these adventures where all they had amidst the remote and rugged wilderness was each other.

Expedition Cheek is an extraordinary account of a husband and wife’s trek off the beaten path, through the road less travelled, where danger literally abounds. This book is not only for travel enthusiasts, but also for those with an interest in exotic wildlife and big game hunting, as well as readers interested the exciting exploits of a loving couple.
