Julie and Colin Angus

National Geographic adventurers of the year, Julie and Colin Angus, sail the Mediterranean with their infant son searching for the secrets of the olive tree. Inspired by Julie’s Syrian forebears’ intimate relationship with the olive, Julie and Colin Angus unlock the secrets of the fruit that meant so much to them. Travelling from Spain to Israel by sailboat and overland, the Angus’ collect samples from ancient trees to determine where the first olive tree originated; feast on inky black tapenades and codfish drizzled with olive oil, among many other delights; witness the harvesting of olives in Greece; and visit perhaps the oldest olive tree in the world, on Crete. The result is a remarkable sailing journey and a fascinating history and biography of this most influential and irresistible fruit.
