Description
Often among the leading celebrities of their day, the world's great explorers captured headlines and the public imagination, while journalists and publishers vied to get the returning adventurers' stories into print. British travel historian and radio presenter John Keay introduces this selection of some of the best firsthand accounts of these exciting and dangerous journeys, including David Livingstone's exploration of the headwaters of the Congo, Henry Stanley's pursuit of the missing Livingstone, Alexander Mackenzie's first crossing of the North American continent, Hiram Bingham's discovery of the Incan city Machu Picchu, and Wilfred Thesiger's crossing of Arabia's Empty Quarter with his Bedouin companions.
