Pathfinders tells the epic story of human exploration. From the earliest migratory wanderings that scattered human societies across the planet to the great voyages of discovery that started linking them up again, and finally to the conquering of the final geographical frontiers in the twentieth century, Fernßndez-Armesto reveals the real flesh-and-blood, the vainglory and fantasy that motivated the pathfinders of the world.
