Book Description

The DK Illustrated Book of Great Adventures dramatically recounts the true-life exploits of outstandingly brave men and women.

This exciting collection of adventure stories is filled with exploits from across the world, from Europe, Africa, America, Australia, and Asia. It features early accounts of the exploration of unknown lands as well as modern tales of space travel. Shipwrecks and storms, battles and bandits do not deter these extraordinary men and women who push themselves to the limits of endurance. The book includes the voyages of great historical figures such as Marco Polo and Captain Cook as well as the travels of other less well-known explorers such as Mary Kingsley and Ibn Batt ta.

Superb, action-packed illustrations capture the daunting challenges and death-defying dangers recounted in every tale, as well as bring out the flavour of the storys setting, whether it is a stormy ocean or a parched desert. Detailed maps and photographs support the stories and add a wealth of fascinating background information.
