The most comprehensive and useful book of its kind in the world - packed full of practical information and advice for the adventurous traveller. The Royal Geographical Society has been giving help and advice to the scientific and adventurous since 1830. This book is the distillation of many years of experience and expertise. It is packed full of practical information and advice from planning, fundraising and insurance to cures for amoebiasis, tapeworms and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. It explains why divers shouldn't wear gloves, why sharpening machetes can affect navigation in the rainforest and how aluminium foil can be useful in the desert. It covers every part of the world, from mountains and glaciers to savannah and jungle. This fifth edition has been completely revised and updated to take account of the latest changes in equipment, techniques and knowledge. It has invaluable directories of funding sources and specialist suppliers and services, and lists of useful addresses and further reading.
