Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A clearly written and well illustrated account of some of the most intrepid adventures in history.Although you will have heard of most of the people involved, the most interesting parts of the book, for me, concerned people I'd never come across before. Cal Rodgers is one that springs to mind. Fearless to the point of derangement, Rodgers was the first person to fly across the USA, coast to coast, in 1911, crash landing so many times that by the time he got to California only the rudder and one of the wing-struts survived from his original aircraft. Insanity. There are many more tales like that in a book which will send you to the library or get you surfing the net for more details of some of these fascinating journeys.

This is an account of 60 adventures over land,sea and air.The journeys are divided into 6 groups 1) air and space 2)ice and snow 3)wind and water 4)imperialists and adventurers 5)escapers and 6)survivors.
All the usual suspects are there including the Wright brothers,Amundsen,Naomi James,Younghusband and Shackleton.
Very well written and researched with good pictures (mostly black and white) maps and index.
The book well describes what man can achieve.
