Dr. David Hanscom talks with conservationist and best-selling author Mark Owens about his multiple battles with chronic pain. When he healed from the chronic pain that accompanied a broken back during a fall from his horse, he thought he was done with it. But later, stress, chronic disease and other physical traumas made him feel like he had fallen back into the abyss.  He recovered again by realizing that stress is inevitable and the only way to handle is to use the tools that had helped him before.

Mark Owens with wife Delia, lived for nearly eight years in the Kalahari Desert  of Botswana where they pioneered wildlife research studies on desert lions, Brown hyenas and migrating antelope in an unmapped fossil river valley so remote that the animals there had never before laid eyes on modern man.  Lions literally slept with them, brown hyenas licked water from their toes while they sponge-bathed, and a leopard slept on the stoop of their tent.  From the Kalahari they traveled to The Northern Rift Valley in Zambia where they stopped elephant ivory poaching by helping villagers find small sustainable businesses and improved agriculture as alternatives.  Their three international best-selling books, Cry of the Kalahari, The Eye of The Elephant and Secrets of The Savanna chronicle their remarkable journey.
