Summary A childhood friend of humanitarian Stefan Templeton describes Templeton's love for high-stakes adventure, his participation in one of Scandinavia's biggest jewel heists, and eventual transformation into an international humanitarian
Stefan Templeton was a child of extremes. He spent half his childhood with his African American philosopher father in Baltimore, a brilliant academic, an intense disciplinarian, and a martial artist; and the other half with his Norwegian mother, an aristocrat, mystic and healer, all over Europe. By age eighteen Stefan was a skilled fighter, philosopher, lover, horseman, and swimmer. His highs came from adventure. He hunted in France, brawled in England, served as a medicine man in Colombia, escaped death on the Amazon. Love of the mother of his first child temporarily settled Stefan in Norway, but adrenaline addiction soon kicked in. Eventually, he found himself in a labyrinthine criminal world--where he pulled off one of the biggest jewel heists in Scandinavia's history. Then fate brought him an opportunity to help the wretched Karen people of Burma. By serving the forgotten, Stefan could begin his restitution. This Renaissance man at last utilized his uncommon skills for humanitarian relief.--From publisher description
