In the Worlds to Explore, Editor Mark Jenkins takes reader around the world through 54 classic stories from an era when travel still involved tramp steamers, Pan Am Clippers, and the occasional camel caravan. From remote corners of tsarist Russia to ˇ§new worldsˇ¨ of undersea exploration and early aviation, Jenkins artfully introduces each selection, placing it in context and describing the captivating correspondents, wide-eyed adventurers, and incurable vagabonds who helped make the National Geographic Society a household name.
