'Faces of Exploration' is a stunning collection of interviews, photographs and biographies of fifty of the world's most famous and inspirational explorers. It will appeal to anyone motivated by examples of great human endeavour, fascinated by exploration or interested in what makes people risk their lives to undertake epic journeys.
Each explorer is given four pages made up of a full page black and white portrait shot, two pages of text (of approximately 1000 words) and a photograph or image supplied by the explorer themselves from one of their expeditions.
'Faces of Exploration' is the first collection to focus entirely on contemporary explorers. It is endorsed with the double authority of the Royal Geographic Society and the Explorers Club, and filled with inspirational stories and images that will bring this defining period of history to life.
