Item description for Historical Atlas of Expeditions (Historical Atlas) by Karen Farrington...

When Sir Edmund Hillary made his famous comment about climbing Mount Everest because it was there , he summed up the raison d 'tre behind every explorer's drive to leave safe boundaries and tackle the unknown. The thrill and honor of being the first to explore any geographical region outweighed the enormous risks for those with a special brand of courage and imagination. Adventurers from Strabo, the Roman explorer in the Mediterranean, to Marco Polo in China, David Livingstone in Central Africa and Robert Falcon Scott in the Antarctic all shared the common traits of bravery, valor and perseverance in their endeavors to make known the unknown. They became the envy of others and won a place in history, their tales of adventure and hardship at once fascinating, fulfilling, and strangely perplexing. Historical Atlas of Expeditions brings this pioneer breed of men, and women, to life in thrilling detail.

Reviews - What do customers think about Historical Atlas of Expeditions (Historical Atlas)?

Not an atlas, but useful just the same  Oct 19, 2001
This book is really mis-titled, as the maps are only a minor part of it. It does have great pictures and graphics and good basic information about many explorers. I would recommend it as a reference, but not as an atlas!
Follows the journeys of adventurers around the world  Feb 6, 2001
Karen Farrington's Historical Atlas of Expeditions follows the journeys of adventurers around the world, using the atlas format to provide a set of maps on famous explorers, their expeditions, and their encounters. From the machines they used to the concepts they based their travels on, this provides timelines, maps and plenty of easy at-a-glance details.
