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.

* Tenzing and Hillary's conquest of Everest
