Combining firsthand accounts with original images in vintage black and white and brilliant color, The Explorer's Eye, gives insights into who these men and women were, how they operated, and what they saw. Here you have Alexander von Humboldt braving the electric eels of South Africa, Umberto Nobile lamenting the loss of his Zeppelin in an ice floe, and Jacques Cousteau examining the planet from under the waves. Drawing on a multinational archive of explorer s logs, with expert commentary to set each expedition in context and an introduction by Michael Palin, this book is a unique look at the world we inhabit.
