The characters of explorers such as Livingstone, Nansen, Stanley, and Peary have assumed almost mythical proportions. Their names are associated with images of heroism, self-sacrifice, and patriotism. In reality, however, many exploratory expeditions were tainted by deception, greed, incompetence, ignorance, and failure. How is it, then, that the heroic myths have been created and perpetuated? Based onextensive original research, the book reassesses many explorers' reputations and makes intriguing links between popular culture, the growth of science, imperialism, and the role of the media. Includes an Index."...an eye-opening and absorbing contribution to the history of exploration."-Peter Hopkirk (Key Words: Explorers, Beau Riffenburgh, Exploration, Henry Morton Stanley, Sensationalism, Greenland, Fridtjof Nansen, James Gordon Bennett).
