From the cover: “Over two thousand years ago Alexander the Great led his conquering army on gruelling marches across the Himalayas and into the heart of India. Since then, intrepid men and women have pushed the frontiers of the known world back further and further until, with little of the surface of the earth left to chart, astronauts took ‘one giant leap for mankind’ when they stepped from their landing-craft on to the moon. Great Explorers spotlights the adventures of over forty of these courageous pioneers. Their characters and motives were as varied as the terrains they crossed.”
