Incorporated in 1905, The Explorers Club in its earliest years met in simple rented rooms. In 1965, the Club bought a Tudor-style mansion on East 70th Street in the historic Upper East Side, where it has remained ever since.

Celebrating its centennial anniversary in 2004, today The Explorers Club is an international society dedicated to the advancement of field research, scientific exploration, and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore.

This volume is dedicated to the spirit of exploration. Assembled by Club member and literary giant George Plimpton, As Told by the Explorer's Club will take you from Amundsen to Lindbergh, from the Arctic to Antarctica, and all points in between.
