Synopsis

Great Explorers by Stewart Ross

Join the world's bravest explorers on some of the greatest journeys ever made in this exciting paperback edition of Into the Unknown: a highly acclaimed book. From Pytheas the Greek, who sailed to the Arctic Circle without a compass, to Neil Armstrong landing on the moon - here are 14 extraordinary journeys by land, sea and air - each remarkable for the way it was made, for the technology behind it, and for the inspiration it gave to future generations. Gripping storytelling, fantastic fold-out cross sections, detailed maps and remarkable technical drawings enable readers to experience the excitement of exploration in this newly re-formatted, larger edition of a major non-fiction title.

Reviews

About the Author

Stewart Ross

After several years teaching at a variety of institutions in Britain, the USA, the Middle East and Sri Lanka, Stewart Ross became a full-time writer eleven years ago. With over 175 published titles to his credit, in a remarkably short time he has become one of Britain’s most popular and versatile authors.

Current projects include a third adult novel, five volumes in Hodder's Survivors series of children's historical fiction, more volumes in their Stories From History for young children, several other historical stories and works of non-fiction, a Jubilee revue, and a musical with Paul Englishby (musical director of Captain Corelli's Mandolin'). A frequent lecturer, notably on the QE2, and occasional journalist and broadcaster, Stewart lives near Canterbury with his wife and four children. Each morning escapes domestic hubbub by commuting ten metres to work in a large hut in the garden.
