Book Description Literary Licensing, LLC. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 344 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.8in.For more books like this, please visit www. SportsmansVintagePress. com This is a facsimile of the book published in 1935. From the preface: I always like to shift the responsibility for a book of mine to some one else, or at least to divide it. The chief responsibility for this volume is my wifes, for it was her suggestion that I write an informal account of my conception of modern explorationthe exploration of today and tomorrowas I have told it to her. There was a selfish motive, too, for it may help to answer the questions which have come to me by the thousand: How can I be an explorer What remains to be done in exploration After telling in the first chapter what this business of exploration has become, I have amplified some of the details by my own experiences in the field and out of it. As a concrete example of modern scientific exploration I have given an account of the 1928-1930 Central Asiatic Expeditions in the Gobi Desert which has not been published in popular book form. These Expeditions were conducted with a background of war, banditry and politics in China, which made them interesting but exceedingly difficult. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
