The tale of John Barrow, Second Secretary to the Admiralty, and the expeditions organised by him during the 19th Century. Areas explored by `Barrow's Boys' included the Arctic, Sahara, and the North Pole, and the expeditions lack of preparation, allied to Barrow's insouciant way with maps, makes this a tale of absurdly dangerous comedy as well as harrowing personal endeavor.`This is travel history of the best kind: entertaining, informed and opinionated.'Sunday Times
`This is an engrossing story of high endeavour and frustrated hope...'Sunday Telegraph
