An exciting collection of dangerous adventures and groundbreaking exploration, The Best Adventure and Exploration Stories Ever Told compiles the works of authors from all over the world and from the very distant past to recent eras. Popular and well-known authors such as Herman Melville, Jack London, Joseph Conrad, and Jules Verne are featured, as well as Homer's mythic tales and Iceland's mesmerizing sagas from the tenth and eleventh centuries.
