Really a nicely done bio. I read this during a phase where I was obsessed with explorers. If you're interested, I also enjoyed Blue Latitudes: Boldly Going Where Captain Cook Has Gone Before and A Pirate of Exquisite Mind: Explorer, Naturalist, and Buccaneer: The Life of William Dampier. I didn't like Bergreen's Marco Polo: From Venice to Xanadu as much as this. This is a great, fun-to-read, interesting biography.
