Description - The Faber Book of Exploration by Benedict Allen
Benedict Allen's anthology of human exploration presents the words of those who have set off into 'the unknown' and returned to tell the tale. This volume is the first full-ranging anthology of the subject, bringing together Vikings and cosmonauts, conquistadors and botanists. There is no doubting Benedict Allen's voracious appetite for exploration, and as such he is our ideal guide across these extraordinary pages.

Author Biography - Benedict Allen
Benedict Allen is one of the UK's most prominent explorers. For the past twenty-five years he has conducted solo expeditions through the Amazon jungle, along Namibia's Skeleton Coast and across Mongolia's Gobi Desert without the use of GPS, satellite phone or other means of outside support, as we as having written ten books of his adventures and editing The Faber Book of Exploration. He was the first explorer to bring the full experience of remote travel to television - taking the genre to its limits by not using a camera crew and so bringing an immediacy to his experiences. Allen regularly gives lectures at the Royal Geographic Society.
