For more than a century, The Explorers Club has been the meeting place for some of the most daring adventurers on the planet. As Told At The Explorers Club: More Than Fifty Gripping Tales Of Adventure will take you to all corners of the globe, showcasing personal accounts of some of history's most intrepid explorers.
From Amundsen to Lindbergh, from the Arctic to Antarctica, and all points in between, these are some of the most hair-raising journeys ever made, all selected by the late George Plimpton, a Member of The Explorers Club himself.
This updated edition includes a new foreword by Richard Wiese, the 44th President of The Explorers Club, and an all-new photo insert that takes readers inside the exclusive club and its world-famous archives. Edited and with an introduction by George Plimpton. Paperback, 480 pages.
People have reflected on the question of “who are we?” for centuries, and that question became the jumping off point for this project: Who are we as an institution? And more importantly, who do we want to be? We have over 100 years of exploration legacy behind us, empowered by the most extraordinary accomplishments of human history. With that in mind, the question became, what does the future of The Explorers Club and the next 100 years of exploration look like?
To answer that question we have launched The Explorers Club 50: Fifty People Changing the World that the World Needs to Know About. Every honoree featured in this publication, as well as hundreds of other nominees, are exploring, inspiring, and creating the future -- the future of the planet, the future of food security, of paleontology, of biology, what our communities should look like, and so much more. The EC50 was established to not only reflect the great diversity of exploration, but to give a voice to these trailblazing explorers, scientists, and activists doing incredible work.
For the first time, The Explorers Club 50 hardcopy publication is available to order online. Featuring a beautifully embossed cover and stunning full page photography, this 124-page book presents all fifty of the honorees, reflecting the great diversity of exploration and giving a voice to these trailblazing explorers, scientists, and activists who do incredible work.
