Fifty stories of adventure and exploration over more than two hundred years of human history. The Great Horizon features those who set out to conquer new territories and claim world records alongside those who contributed to our understanding of the world all but accidentally. Published in association with the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, and with full access to their extensive records, the book includes unique images and insights from the RSGS archives, along with never-before seen material.
Jo Woolf was born in Shropshire, and now lives with her husband in West Lothian. She has always had a passion for writing, along with a lively fascination for history and the natural world. In 2014 she began digging into the archives of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society, in a mission to bring to light some half-forgotten figures in the field of exploration.
