A Must Have,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shipton and Tilman (Hardcover)
Whilst in later life Shipton & Tilman went their seperate ways the ten or so years that they were exploring together was so spectacular that it must go down as one of the greatest periods of exploration in British history. I'm sure that some people will use the words "imperialistic" - ignore them and live for the moment, they weren't doing this for their country, they were doing it for the world.
Oddly neither of them were knighted! How things change - today they would have received that for a hundreth of what they did!
