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

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

* 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.
