About this book

Daring French Explorations is an exceptional homage to adventure. Intrepid French mariners – including legendary explorers Lapérouse, Bougainville, and Dumont d'Urville, and unsung sailors La Barbinais, Pagès, and Roquefeuil – embark readers on sixteen voyages around the world from 1714 to 1854.

A selection of firsthand accounts culled from their maritime travelogues recounts the trials and tribulations the explorers encountered as they charted new routes to remote territories. Their unfiltered observations on wide-ranging themes – from geopolitics and commerce to climate change and global cultures – resonate with contemporary issues.

This handsome volume – featuring many previously unpublished illustrations, engravings, and maps – traces their extraordinary scientific, diplomatic, or commercial expeditions, which significantly marked the history of world exploration.
