Exploration Experience: The Heroic Exploits of the World's Greatest Explorers, Beau Riffenburgh
1 Beau Riffenburgh Exploration Experience: The Heroic Exploits of the World's Greatest Explorers
The Royal Geographic Society 236008 Great Britain 2007 0233002197 / 9780233002194 Hardcover (in Slipcase) Near Fine Condition "The RGS Exploration Experience" begins in the Golden Age of exploration with some of the earliest explorers from the Vikings to the early Chinese travellers, the discovery of the Americas by French and Spanish explorers and the eventual circumnavigation of the globe. The book is then divided into continents to detail later exploration of countries all over the world. Starting in the Americas with the brave pioneers who forged new routes into and beyond the frontiers, it moves onto the exotic and remote parts of Asia, the wilds of deepest Africa, beautiful Pacific islands, the hostile terrain of Australia and finally the frozen expanses of the Arctic and Antarctic. Covering professional explorers, botanists hunting for undiscovered plants, missionaries spreading Christianity into unexplored regions, women, aristocrats and explorers of many different nationalities, the "RGS Exploration Experience" is an essential journey for armchair and actual explorers both young and old. The memorabilia includes: booklet of pages from John Hanning Speke's sketchbook, watercolour sketch by Samuel Baker, and drawing of the Victoria Falls by David Livingstone. Includes CD Rom.

High Adventure, Edmund Hilary
2 Edmund Hilary High Adventure
Readers Book Club 230284 London Hardcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket A. Spark [Maps] George Djurkouic [Sketches] Everest: forbidding, exhilarating, unconquerable. All courageous attempts by man to reach its summit by heading up the northern side from Tibet had failed. The southern approach through Nepal had never before been climbed, due to its impossibly steep ice-covered slopes and the country's policies. But in 1951 Edmund Hillary joined an expedition to find a new route up Everest from the south, which led to a new chapter in mountaineering history. The climbers' determination, endurance and battle against the elements culminated with their famous climb in 1953 as they finally reached the summit of this formidable mountain. This is Hillary's own account of the treacherous and breathtaking journeys. 256 pages. Illustrator: A. Spark [Maps] George Djurkouic [Sketches]. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Shipton & Tillman: The Great Decade of Himalayan Exploration, Jim Perrin
3 Jim Perrin Shipton & Tillman: The Great Decade of Himalayan Exploration
Arrow 235977 Great Britain 2014 0099505088 / 9780099505082 Softcover Very Good Condition Using unpublished diaries, Jim Perrin, the acclaimed author of The Villain and Menlove, tells the story of the greatest exploring partnership in British history. In the 1930s Tilman and the younger Shipton pioneered many routes in Africa and the Himalayas and found the key to unlocking Everest. They crossed Africa by bicycle, explored China with Spender and Auden, journeyed down the Oxus River to its source and, with no support, opened up much of the Nepalese Himalaya. In the words of Jim Perrin, 'The journeys of discovery undertaken through two decades by this pair of venturesome ragamuffins are unparallelled in the annals of mountain exploration.' Jim Perrin writes of his source-material: 'These unpublished diaries, journals, and extensive correspondence have not previously been used to present a portrait of the most productive friendship in the history of mountain exploration. What they reveal is, in Shipton's phrase, "a random harvest of delight" gathered by two uniquely bold and engaging characters from the great mountain ranges of the world during the golden era of their first western exploration. Between geographical excitement, the nature of arduous travel in difficult and uncharted terrain throughout a lost epoch, and the quirkiest and most stimulating of friendships, the theme is a gift, and one that has long been waiting for adequate treatment' 410 pages.

New Europe, Michael Palin
5 Michael Palin New Europe
BBC 234118 London 2007 0297844490 / 9780297844495 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good No. 1 bestseller and superstar doing what he does best, introducing millions of avid readers to little-known peoples and places.Until the early 1990s, when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down, travelling behind the iron curtain was never easy. In undertaking his new journey through Eastern Europe, breathing in its rich history, and exquisite sights and talking to its diverse peoples, Michael fills what has been a void in his own experience and that of very many others. NEW EUROPE is very much a voyage of discovery, from the snows of the Julian Alps to the beauty of the Baltic sea, he finds himself in countries he'd barely heard of, many unfamiliar and mysterious, all with tragic histories and much brighter futures.During his 20-country adventure Palin meets Romanian lumberjacks, drives the 8.58 stopping train from Poznan to Wolsztyn, treads the catwalk at a Budapest fashion show, learns about mine-clearing in Bosnia and watches Turkish gents wrestling in olive oil. As with all his bestselling books, in his uniquely entertaining style, Palin opens up a new and undiscovered world to millions of readers. Illustrated with colour photographs. TV Tie-In.
