Fascinating and brief history of explorers and their adventures. I particularly enjoyed reading about Mary Kingsley and how she fearlessly explored the west coast of Africa alone in 1895, also how the father/son team Auguste & Jacques Piccard explored the stratosphere in the 1930s and then used that same technology to build a deep-sea craft.
