The exploration of uncharted terrain has always stirred the human imagination. Illustrated with rare photographs from the archives of The Times, this handsome volume charts the achievements of the men and women who have pushed forward the boundaries of our geographical knowledge. Focusing on each of the world's most challenging terrains - mountains, ice, jungles, deserts, seas and deep caves - it vividly retells the dramatic expeditions of Livingstone, Stanley, Scott, Amundsen, Freya Stark, Edmund Hillary and many others.
