This is an epic guide to the most intrepid mountaineers in history. Written in association with the Royal Geological Society, 'Mountaineers' tells the story of the pioneers who first conquered the giddy heights of our planet. Full of great tales of endurance and perseverance, more than 80 of the top mountaineers are profiled from Hadrian to Hillary.
 
Share in their triumphs and tragedies from the comfort of your living room as journal extracts and never-before-seen photographs and maps from the unpublished archives of the RGS help recreate history's greatest ascents. 'Mountaineers' introduces you to intriguing characters, from the Brits who insisted on hauling cases of vintage champagne up to Everest base camp in 1924, to the Italian Duke of the Abruzzi who took 10 iron bedsteads up Alaska's Malaspina glacier.
 
Along the way you'll also find out about the important scientific discoveries that have shaped the course of human history and enjoy accounts of great bravery, fellowship and good humour in the face of adversity, all making 'Mountaineers' a fascinating read for anyone with a spirit of adventure.
