The Modern Explorers
This collection of thrilling and inspiring accounts from today's most intrepid adventures will immerse you in the experience of extreme exploration: to be dragged through the top of the rainforest canopy in an inflatable raft suspended from a balloon; to trek across inhospitable desert with your water supply running out: to inch up a sheer rock wall to conquer a summit never climbed before; to pedal a boat solo across the Pacific; or to stand on the edge of an erupting volcano. The passion, courage and resilience of these modern explorers come to life in their stories of epic journeys to some of the most remote parts of the planet in extreme conditions, often alone and never far from danger. Book jacket.
