 About the Book 

Tales of Endurance and Exploration offers 45 gripping accounts of some of the most amazing feats in the history of exploration. The tales are divided between three ages of exploration, each of which is prefaced by a lively essay introducing key aspects of the age in question and identifying themes that will be developed in greater detail in the stories that follow. Taken together, tales and introductions amount to nothing less than a complete, uniquely accessible, and supremely entertaining history of exploration.From the Renaissance golden age of Columbus, da Gama and Magellan to the 20th-century heroics of polar explorers such as Peary, Scott and Amundsen, Cassells Tales of Endurance and Exploration offers the reader an unforgettable and unputdownable collection of stories.
