Explore offers first-hand accounts from the world’s boldest explorers, men and women encountering storms, starvation, cannibals, predators and disease in their pursuit of adventure. Their stories are immediate, passionate and dramatic accounts of contact with the unknown, discovered in the Himalaya, the ruins of Peru, the jungles of New Guinea and the Amazon, the ice flows of the Arctic, along with death in the big city. With selections from Tim Cahill, Redmond O’Hanlon, John Long, Fridtjof Nansen and Harold Brodkey, Explore will take you off the map to those few refuges where true discovery is still possible. Rescue: Stories of Survival From Land and Sea offers stories about what happens when things go terribly wrong in some of the world’s most perilous places: Himalayan peaks, African plains, vast oceans, remote Arctic wilderness. But mostly, Rescue is about what humans can endure and achieve in the face of overwhelming duress. Both Explore and Rescue are Publishers Weekly 'Listen Up' Award winners.

Author Bio: Fridtjof Nansen

Fridtjof Nansen (1861–1930) was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. He retired from exploration after his harrowing journey to the north pole, but he continued to study marine life and oceanography. He also turned to politics and was instrumental in Norway’s transition to an independent nation. He devoted his late life to the League of Nations and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922 for his work on behalf of displaced victims of World War I.
