Description

Why do explorers put themselves in dangerous situations? And, once the worst possible situation occurs, how do they find the resources to survive?In answering these questions, Benedict Allen weaves a series of tales from his own experience as well as that of other explorers including Columbus, Cortez, Scott, Shakelton, Stanley, Livingstone and their modern counterparts: Joe Simpson and Ranulf Fiennes.
