Summary: For intensity of geographical exploration and wealth of first-rate adventure writing by intrepid men and women, the 19th century stands alone. This definitive collection contains thirty-five stories from the most compelling odysseys of the century. The excerpts are as varied as the voyages themselves ? some humorous and lighthearted, others desperate and thrilling ? but all are examples of adventure, and adventure writing, at the highest level. Several long-forgotten classics are reprinted here for the first time in one hundred years.
