Details

Compared with polar explorers, those who charted the world’s deserts are less remembered. This book presents 60 short biographies of people including JL Burckhardt, discoverer of Abu Simbel, Gertrude Bell who mapped Iraq, and Burke and Wills, whose trek across Australia cost them their lives. Illustrated with maps and photographs, it is arranged geographically with an introduction to each region.
