Davidson in tilly hat with her camels carrying luggage dirt road Western Australia

Robyn Davidson - Davidson in tilly hat with her camels carrying luggage behind her along a dirt road in Western Australia.

In 1975 Robyn Davidson arrived in Alice Springs with a dog, AUS 6 dollar, a ‘suitcase full of inappropriate clothes’ and the ‘lunatic idea’ of training a team of camels for a 2,740km (1,700 mile) trek from Australia’s central desert to the shores of the Indian Ocean. For two years she worked and trained on the local camel farms, scrimping and saving for her journey, eventually accepting sponsorship from National Geographic to purchase the supplies and equipment she needed to embark on a journey through one of the most inhospitable places on planet Earth.

Captain Robert Falcon Scott

Captain Robert Falcon Scott

Robert Falcon Scott first set to sea as a Royal Navy midshipman in 1883 aged just thirteen years old. Rising quickly through the ranks, he eventually attracted the attention of the Royal Geographical Society, which put him in command of the 1901 National Antarctic ‘Discovery’ Expedition. When Scott successfully returned to England in 1904, having travelled further south than anyone before, he was hailed as a national hero. Utterly captivated by this little-known continent, in 1910 he left on the Terra Nova: ‘To reach the South Pole, and to secure for the British Empire the honour of this achievement.’

Laura Bingham

Rising in the Acarai Mountains in southern Guyana, the Essequibo River flows towards the north for 1,000km (630 miles). What starts as a stream in pristine virgin rainforest becomes a mighty 20km (12 mile) wide estuary as it empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Even though it is South America’s third-longest river, no previous expedition before had ever succeeded in canoeing its entire length, from the source to the sea. In February 2018, a team of three female adventurers, led by the British explorer Laura Bingham, set out to become the first.

Editorial Reviews

Review

‘A fascinating and unique look at these celebrated expeditions. Ed Stafford knows all too well how important an explorer’s kit can be and this brilliant book gives great insight into the role it plays.’―Sir Ranulph Fiennes

"This book is perfect for anyone fascinated by the evolution of outdoor gear and/or inspired by the stories of the people who set out on the most daring first attempts."―Hammock Living

About the Author

Ed Stafford is the Guinness World Record-holding first person to walk the Amazon River. Sir Ranulph Fiennes described his expedition as being “truly extraordinary… in the top league of expeditions past and present.” A former British Army captain, Ed filmed and blogged his deadly journey and engaged followers all over the world for almost two-and-a-half years. His footage was made into a Discovery Channel documentary and was sold to over 100 countries and he authored the best-selling book, Walking the Amazon. Ed has gone on to film seven survival series and is now an established face of Discovery Channel, and his seventh series, Ed Stafford: First Man Out, aired in late 2018 globally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read & Conversation Piece!
By Raul G. on January 27, 2020
I'm a huge fan of large format "coffee table" books like Expeditions Unpacked since my dad got me hooked on similar books from National Geographic and others as a child. This book might be an excellent decorative piece on a coffee table but is well worth the time investment to read and pour over the various expeditions and explorers covered in its pages.

Famous explorers from Amelia Earhart to Sir Edmund Hillary, to Jacques Cousteau are present with gorgeous, full color and black and white photos. Each expedition begins the same way; with a small introductory paragraph and an illustration depicting the various tools and items used along the way.

The book is broken out into easy to read, bite-sized chunks dedicating less than ten pages to each expedition. It's great to be able to quickly finish a section in short order and come back to read about a completely different explorer.

Excellent book whether you're looking for a conversation piece or something to spur further research and reading. Recommended!
