Foreword by Levison Wood, presenter of Walking the Americas. A comprehensive, fascinating and inspiring gallery of the great adventures that changed our world.

Throughout history there have been brave men and women who dared to go where few had gone before. They broke new ground by drawing on incredible reserves of courage, fortitude and intelligence in the face of terrible adversity. Their endeavours changed the world and inspired generations.

Spanning several centuries and united by the common theme of the resilience of the human spirit, this is the ultimate collection of the stories of the intrepid explorers who forged new frontiers across land, sea, skies and space.

50 incredible journeys including;
* Tenzing and Hillary's conquest of Everest
* Neil Armstrong's giant leap
* Christopher Columbus' new world
* Amelia Earhart flying the Atlantic
* gold fever in the Yukon
* the hunt for a man-eating leopard in India

Great Expeditions includes not only some of the most famous journeys in history but also introduces many more that ought to be more widely recognised and celebrated.

'If you want some journey inspiration...' - Levison Wood

“A Shallow Textbook”

My hope was that a book with such an attention-grabbing title would provide for exciting and ambitious reading.I was disappointed from the start. The individual accounts of expeditions are far too shallow, not simply... More
