About this book

This is an epic visual guide to the most intrepid explorers in history. Written in association with the Royal Geographical Society (RGS), "Explorers" brings you stories of great courage, spirit and endurance and opens your eyes to how these expeditions have shaped the course of human history. Set out into the unknown with more than 80 of the world's greatest explorers from across nations and throughout history and discover what motivated them to risk everything in pursuit of discovery. With a foreword by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, undoubtedly one of the greatest living explorers, and an introduction from Michael Palin, President of the RGS, "Explorers" features the personal stories and first hand accounts of the people whose courage opened frontiers, turned voids into maps, connected cultures and added to humankind's knowledge of the world. Featuring exclusive, never-before-seen photography from the RGS archive, rare maps and specially-commissioned artworks, "Explorers" will appeal to all those who love the thrill of travel and exploration and want to experience the triumphs and tragedies of real-life adventure.
