Reviews

`A fabulous book, good enough to eat with a spoon! Marvellous.' -- John Lloyd, creator of QI
`A sumptuous new book on the quest to find out where we are, where we're going and where be dragons.' * Big Issue *
'This beautiful book takes 37 great expeditions...accompanied with rare maps of the time, which...illustrate the exploratory urge, or "the extraordinary stories of how the world came to be known". As the author writes, "Maps are alive with stories." And this adventuresome volume is too.' * Strong Words *
`Perfect for the armchair adventurer historian, this is a rich visual exploration of some of the most beautiful charts ever created.' * National Geographic *
