Description

As an homage to the explorers, discoverers and pioneers that on countless occasions have inspired Royal Explorer Club members to venture out into the wild, the club has created the book Safe Return Doubtful. It is a carefully curated collection of anecdotes that will inspire boldness and bravado in the reader. Chapters include the tale of Hugh Glass who after wrestling a bear had to crawl back to civilisation, pirate Benjamin Hornigold who once attacked a ship just to steal their hats and of course the legendary story of Mad Jack Churchill, famous for always bringing his bagpipes to battle and for carrying out the last recorded kill by longbow and arrow in WWII. Other chapters include awe-inspiring stories of war heroes as well as everyday heroes, tails from the endeavours of famous explorers, the adventures of a female balloonist, an account of the deific madness of Xerxes and the unfortunate tale of the sinking of a German U-boat due to the malfunction of its toilet. Safe Return Doubtful is an unparalleled compilation devoted to the spirit of those with contempt for conventional wisdom, an attraction to the grandiose and an obvious disregard for danger.show more

About Lazarus Royal

Lazarus Royal is the common pseudonym used by the members of the Royal Explorers Club, a small group of men unified in the hunt for adventure, armed only with guile, bravado and contempt for conventional wisdom. We draw our inspiration from the old explorers and adventurers of the world. The truly tough men of absurd principle, those who were often drawn to the ostentatious and grandiose. We find enjoyment in the stories of their tenacity, toughness and humour in the face of adversity.show more
