How do you survive a charging elephant? What's the best way to serve polar bear meat? Where do you find water in a desert? Learn the answers to these questions and more from the best instructors possible: a cast of famous explorers, including Livingstone, Shackleton and John Hunt. Mick Conefrey delves into the original diaries and logs of the great expeditions to provide a winning combination of intrepid tales of yester-year and witty retro tips. You'll discover which famous explorer was cooked by Hawaiian natives and who was left on an ice floe in the Arctic by his drunk captain. Packed with fun facts and trivia, this is the perfect gift for hardened explorers and armchair adventurers alike.
