An incredible yet little known true story 17 July 2002
By sir_isaac_newton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This account of the first south-north crossing in Victorian times is incredible. A film of this story several years ago did little to change that situation. The story recounts the key attempts and the elaborate expeditions involved. The crux of the story really revolves around a series of many mishaps and oh so near misses. Tragedy was almost avoided numerous times but ultimately...well read the book. The fact that the story is known and accurately recorded is in itself an incredible sub-plot. It is hard to believe sometimes that this is a true story -- yet this is a case of real life being more amazing than one would dare write as fiction! The story is quite detailed but hang in there, the threads all come together in an incredible finale.

Exploration with a twist. 29 Oct. 2013
By Joseph E. Cowen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the great tragic stories of exploration. What an adventure! Things would have been easier to the expedition if they had taken time to have learned to live off of the land.
