Hardcover, 320 pages, October 2000

Sir Christian Bonington brilliantly examines the remarkable will and peerless valor possessed by each of the men and women celebrated in this collection of exhilarating adventures. From the moonwalking Neil Armstrong to the world-spanning yachtsman Moitessier, from the Empty Quarter-traversing Wilfred Thesiger to the South Pole-conquering Fuchs and Hillary, this thrilling volume showcases the ultimate expeditions of our time, and seeks to illuminate the common bonds of heroism and obsession that link them. Himself a history-making adventurer, he has scaled the heights of Mount Everest four times. Bonington writes with a deep-seated personal understanding of the adventurer?s temperament. Exhaustively researched, full of fascinating interviews, and richly illustrated, Quest for Adventure is a page-turner of the very highest order.
