Saving South Sudan

April 29, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
San Diego, California April 29, 2014 Adventurer, Author, and Founder of DPx Gear, Robert Young Pelton has penned the entire 50,000-word, 130-page April issue of VICE magazine about he and photographer/filmmaker Tim Freccia's recent experience hunting down rebel leader Dr. Riek Machar in South Sudan and riding along with the White Army in combat. When VICE Editor-in-Chief, Rocco Castoro, learned of Pelton and Freccia's plans, he seized upon the opportunity to devote an issue to the adventure. Although VICE, a cutting-edge lifestyle magazine, has done single topic issues they have never dedicated an entire issue to the work of one person.

Returning with exclusive interviews and footage, Pelton and the VICE creative team set about writing, editing and getting the publication to press. The printed magazine will be available staring Monday April 28, 2014 followed by an online version and a 45-minute documentary of the trip. The electronic article and documentary will be posted at
