Description
 
A pre-Darwinian naturalist who trampled barefoot through the snake-infested jungles of South America; a 19th-century Swedish engineer who set out for the North Pole in a gas-filled balloon; a Victorian woman who, after a sheltered life in a London suburb, pursued a “fish & fetish” mission in West Africa. These are just a few of the intrepid travelers whose exploits are dramatically evoked in this fascinating book. Zaunders has brought together 8 people of rare initiative & sketched their stories from their own diaries, letters, & books. The challenges they undertake -- & the way they deal with some unexpected, often desperate situations -- make for compelling reading. “These true-life adventures are gripping to read.” Beautifully illustrated!
