Spanning several centuries and united by the common theme of the resilience of the human spirit, this is the ultimate collection of the stories of the intrepid explorers who forged new frontiers across land, sea, skies and space. The 50 incredible journeys include Tenzing and Hillary’s conquest of Everest; Neil Armstrong’s giant leap; Christopher Columbus’ new world; Amelia Earhart flying the Atlantic; gold fever in the Yukon; and the hunt for a man-eating leopard in India.
