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, Shackleton, Stanley, Livingstone and their modern counterparts: Joe Simpson and Ranulf Fiennes.
For the past 20 years, Benedict Allen's exploits have taken him on solo expeditions through the Amazon, along Namibia's Skeleton Coast and across Mongolia's Gobi desert. He has published accounts of his adventures, and is the editor of The Faber Book of Exploration.
