Filled with the people who made and changed the course of history, this thrilling book takes readers on a voyage of discovery—in a fun and dynamic format that's unique among reference books. From the travels of Erik the Red through the journeys of Marco Polo to the heroic attempts of Livingstone and Scott, these intrepid explorers have expanded our knowledge of the world.


More than 30 rare and newly reproduced removable documents put history directly into readers' hands: Hernán Cortés's hand-drawn map of Tenochtitlan, David Livingstone's watercolor of Victoria Falls, a dinner menu featuring Ernest Shackleton's sketch of his planned trip to Antarctica, and many more.


An exploration in itself, this lavish book creates a unique history adventure for both armchair and "on-the-ground" explorers of every age.

    Polar fleece, titanium, and GPS have forever changed the face of exploration. Today an explorer can make a phone call from the top of Mount Everest and geo-locate himself in the thickest rain forest or the widest desert. Yet despite these advances, few modern adventures get close to the charm and romance of dispatches from the Society's earliest explorers. In those bygone days, the pages of National Geographic were as close as most people could get to high adventure and faraway lands—and here's a chance to recapture them.
