Certain people have always been inspired to explore the limits of the known world and beyond, changing our perception of our surroundings through their courageous adventures, and revealing the planet to us.
What drove such great explorers on? 40 of the greatest are described here in penetrating biographies – their lives, motives and passions. Many of them recounted their journeys themselves in vivid first-hand accounts; others were superb artists and photographers.
The book is illustrated with more than 200 beautiful paintings, photographs, engravings and maps, as well as quotations, so we can experience the adventures through the explorers' own eyes and in their own words.
Written by an international team of distinguished travel writers, broadcasters and historians, the book opens 500 years ago, when the great era of recorded exploration began while sections look at The Land, Rivers, Polar Ice, Deserts, Life on Earth and New Frontiers.
