Dig deep into the tattered back-pages of rare historical accounts dating back to 1897. Much has been written of the great explorers and adventurers of the 20th century: Fawcett, Lindbergh, Mallory, Cousteau, Marx and Heyerdahl, to name a few. But other less-recalled tales of adventure—equally as bold and amazing—hide in the shadows of the spotlight the more popular explorers have commanded. This book presents an assortment of adventure, exploration and sheer boldness which exemplifies the ingenuity, bravery and courage these lesser-known explorers—often underfunded and sometimes literally fighting for their lives—exhibited in their quest for knowledge, accomplishment, or sometimes even treasure.
