Summary

Discover the extraordinary history and thrilling frontiers of exploration with this gorgeously illustrated guide from The Explorers Club, the historic and esteemed home of the world's most prominent explorers.

In 1937, after the world was mapped, the North and South Poles were traversed, and air travel was a well-oiled machine, researchers had one pivotal question: “What’s left to explore?”  Despite the thought that there was nothing left to find, humankind’s curious nature persevered. Travelers, adventurers, and pioneers continued to push the envelope of exploration to the highest points on Earth, to the darkest depths of the ocean floor, to the surface of the moon, and beyond. These boundary-breakers and knowledge-seekers, striving to advance their understanding of our universe, have, at least, one more thing in common: They were members of The Explorers Club.

The Explorers Club presents a guided tour of some of the most riveting journeys led by Club members, with stories detailing the frigid Arctic that date back to the Club’s inception in 1904, the moon landing and the Mars rovers, the accidental discovery of climate change, the detection of space volcanoes, the examination and appreciation of linguistic diversity in the most remote parts of the world, and more.

Filled with fascinating anecdotes about the Club’s distinguished history and its decorated members—including former president Teddy Roosevelt, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, primatologist Jane Goodall, and more—as well as exclusive photos of the Club’s interior and artifacts, The Explorers Club is a celebration of humanity’s enduring passion for adventure and our endless pursuit of knowledge.
