Promotional Information

With an introduction by Michael Palin As gripping as the most nail-biting thriller, these stories bring vividly to life what it is like to stretch the boundaries of courage and endurance. All the greats - Stanley and Livingstone, Scott and Heyerdahl - are here as well as lesser-known but equally compelling explorers. This lavish 3-plate-section edition contains rare drawings and photos. Covers all terrains - from mountains to the moon. 'This is an absorbing, stirring and altogether welcome addition to my overcrowded shelves of traveller's tales. I recommend every armchair traveller (and any one else in need of inspiration) to find space for their own copy' Benedict Allen, Independent on Sunday 'A gripping collection of diary entries, photographs and sketches of 50 explorers' Wanderlust 'An enchanting read ... gripping reading' Guardian
