Explore offers first-hand accounts from the world's boldest explorers, men and women encountering storms, starvation, cannibals, predators and disease in their pursuit of adventure.
Their stories are immediate, passionate and dramatic accounts of contact with the unknown, discovered in the Himalaya, the ruins of Peru, the jungles of New Guinea and the Amazon, the ice flows of the Arctic, along with death in the big city. With selections from Tim Cahill, Redmond O'Hanlon, John Long, Fridtjof Nansen and Harold Brodkey. Explore will take you off the map to those few refuges where true discovery is still possible.
