Описание: Despite dramatic advances in technology and equipment over the centuries, there is one vital piece of kit in most explorers’ pockets that hasn’t changed much at all – the journal. The sketchbooks and journals presented here allow us the opportunity to share, through their own eyes and thoughts, the on-the-spot reactions of around 70 intrepid individuals as they journeyed into frozen wastes, high mountains, barren deserts and rich rainforests. Some are well known, such as Captain Scott, Charles Darwin, Thor Heyerdahl and Abel Tasman; others are unfamiliar, including Adela Breton, who braved the jungles of Mexico to make an unparalleled record of Maya monuments, and Alexandrine Tinne, who died in her attempt to be the first woman to cross the Sahara. Here are pioneering explorers and map-makers, botanists and artists, ecologists and anthropologists, eccentrics and visionaries, men and women. A handful of living explorers, including Wade Davis, provide their thoughts on the art of exploration.
Often battered and neglected, stored away and perhaps long forgotten, many of these sketchbooks have themselves awaited rediscovery. Now is the chance to open them again... Includes a foreword by Robert Macfarlane and essays by several living explorers, among

Описание: For centuries the mysterious region of Southeast Asia known as the Golden Triangle has exerted a powerful hold over Western imagination. Today it continues to figure prominently in world news as a focal point for tales of the infamous traffic in opium and heroin. Yet this fascinating area is also of considerable interest for a different reason: within it live six culturally distinct peoples - the Karen, Hmong, Mien, Lahu, Akha and Lisu - struggling in a hostile environment to maintain the integrity of their beliefs, customs and way of life against all the pressures of the rapidly changing society around them.
Paul and Elaine Lewis lived and worked with the tribes of northern Thailand for many years. The results of their experience and research have been gathered in this book, along with more then 700 photographs - almost all of them in colour. Here we see not merely the demanding landscape in which these peoples live, but their ceremonies and rituals, their clothing and ornamentation, their houses and villages and the impressive skills which they exhibit in such crafts as jewellery, textiles and basketmaking.
