Review Text

In line with Patrick Pringle's Great Discoveries in Modern Science (see report below) this collection of brief but full accounts covers headline adventures that have happened on land and in the sea and air during the last thirty years or so. The climbing of Everest is retold, along with other expeditions like "Elephant Bill's" in the Burmese jungle, ?? Hass' under the sea, Spencer Chapman's in Greenland and so forth. Readable, ever exciting material for those who want it all briefly between two covers. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
