    DescriptionThis 2 CD set features some of best-known literary adventurers and explorers of the 20th century in their own words. The recordings are a mixture of radio broadcasts and live talks and readings. None has been commercially published before. Speakers include Peter Fleming, Rosita Forbes, Laurie Lee, Ella Maillart, Jan Morris, Eric Newby, Sacheverell Sitwell, Freya Stark, Wilfred Thesiger and Laurens van der Post. In one of the earliest recordings included here, made in 1943, Leonard Hussey recalls Shackleton's Antarctic expedition of 1914 - 17. In the most recent, from 1973, Geoffrey Moorhouse speaks about his near-fatal attempt to cross the Sahara, west to east, by camel.
