The Adventurer's Handbook: From Surviving an Anaconda Attack to Finding Your Way Out of a Desert


How do you survive a charging elephant? What's the best way to serve polar bear meat? How do you find water in a desert? Learn the answers to these questions and more from the best instructors possible: a cast of famous explorers, including Livingston, Shackleton and John Hunt. In this irreverent yet inspiring look at the history of adventure, Mick Conefrey delves into the original diaries and logs of great expeditions to provide a winning combination of intrepid stories of yester-year and hilarious retro tips. Discover which famous explorer was cooked by Hawaiian natives and who was left on an ice floe in the Arctic by his drunk captain. Fully illustrated and replete with fascinating text boxes of trivia (how should you address a husky in Alaska?), The Adventurer's Handbook is the perfect gift for both seasoned explorers and office workers dreaming of that next big trip abroad.
