Description

Stories of people going on incredible journeys constantly amaze and astound. Some journeys are meant to be adventures from the start; some begin inauspiciously and finish with a bang; some are groundbreaking and some show extraordinary triumphs in the face of adversity. Some travellers survive their journey and some do not. What makes these people risk their lives? Why do they put themselves in such danger? Divided into six chapters - Air and Space, Ice and Snow, Wind and Water, Great Escapers, Imperialists and Adventurers, Survivors - this book takes 60 extraordinary journeys from the past 100 years and recounts what happened to these intrepid travellers. Think of Amy Johnson, the first woman to fly solo from Britain to Australia; Robert Swan, the first man to walk to both the North and South Poles; Jim Shekhdar, who rowed across the Pacific from Peru to Australia; Neil Armstrong, Ellen MacArthur, Ernest Shackleton, Mallory and Irvine, Charles Lindbergh, Yuri Gagarin, Amelia Earhart, Hiram Bingham, Joe Simpson, Hillary and Norgay, Nautilus, Apollo 13 and Ranulph Fiennes. Incredible Journeys celebrates the remarkable achievements made by these extraordinary adventurers. With insightful text from Thomas Cussans, and fantastic images from the breathtaking summits to the perilous high seas, this book will truly inspire.
