Summary
"Captures the heart of the National Geographic Society's fascinating history, from its beginnings as a scientific club in 1888 to its latest achievements- from Jacques Cousteau's pioneering underwater expeditions to James Cameron's record-breaking descent to the floor of the Mariana Trench. Meet the stars- Louis Leakey, Jane Goodall, Bob Ballard, Sylvia Earle, Spencer Wells, and others whose work has shaped enduring stories and unforgettable imagery. Mark Collins Jenkins presents the epic moments, rippling with the spirit of curiosity that has driven the Society beyond the horizon for 125 years."--p.[4] of cover
