Summary

Penguin presents the audio edition of Expedition, written and read by Steve Backshall.

Shine a light into the unknown.

There are still dark corners of our planet that are yet to be explored. In this remarkable book, Steve Backshall offers an unflinching account of his adventures into these uncharted territories around the globe, in search of world firsts. Each location brings its own epic challenges - whether it's the first climb of an arctic ice fall in Greenland, the first recorded navigation of a South American river, or the first exploration of the world’s longest cave system in Mexico. But all of them represent new tests of the limits of human endeavour. 

Accompanying a major 10-part series on BBC and Dave, Expedition is a breathtaking journey into the unknown, and a brilliantly written celebration of the pleasures of genuine discovery.

Adventure comes in the most awesome of forms

An absolutely gripping account of a sequence of expeditions, each as challenging and inspiring as the last. This book/audiobook just shows how many different forms adventure can be found; how little we have explored our planet and just how powerful nature can be!

Having only known a small part of the Bhutan expedition from my friend Sal when she returned; Steve writes an excellent account of that particular descent and I have a huge amount of respect for the dedication that him and all members of the team put into sharing these moments of awesomeness with us all! Highly recommend buying this book!
