SUMMARY

"Examining each of the terrains which have challenged intrepid travellers - Ice and Snow, Peaks, Jungle, Desert, Sea and Underworlds - Explorers provides a complete chronological and geographical overview of exploration since the late 19th century." "From Franklin's fatal expedition to the Northwest Passage in the 1840s to Amundsen's triumphant journey to the South Pole in 1911 (and his rival, Scott's, fatal attempt), the book covers the triumphs and disasters of polar exploration. The quest to conquer the highest peaks, too, is followed, from the pioneers of mountaineering in the Alps in the 19th century, such as Whymper and Mummery, to the successful conquest of Everest in 1953 by Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. The expeditions to the World's last uncharted jungles, seas and deserts by explorers such as Livingstone, Stanley, Thesiger, Hedin, Heyerdahl and Freya Stark, complete the account of the World's major explorers and expeditions and their achievements." "Illustrated with rare photographs from the archives of The Times of London, many of them unseen for decades, the book is a testament to the adventurers who sought to push back the bounds of human exploration and to penetrate the World's most harsh and threatening environments."--BOOK JACKET.Sale, Richard is the author of 'Times Explorers A Photographic History of Exploration' with ISBN 9780060819057 and ISBN 0060819057.
