For more than a century, The Explorers Club has been the meeting place for some of the most daring adventurers on the planet. It's a legendary oasis, where a man just back from the Gobi Desert might kick back and, over some port, have a chat with a fellow off to Bandung.This updated edition includes a new foreword by Richard Wiese, the 44th president of The Explorers Club, and an all-new photo insert that takes readers inside the exclusive club and its world-famous adventure archives.

Here then, are some of the best tales ever swapped at that capital of adventure, including:

Anthony Fiola on being in close quarters with a polar bear
Charles Lindbergh on his famous flight
Felix Reisenberg on the Arctic
Anne Keenleyside, Ph. D. on cannibalism
Roald Amundsen on the explorer Stefansson
Mervyn Cowie on hunting killer lions
Jean-Marc Boivin on hang-gliding
Curtis and Kathleen Saville on oceanic rowing
E. W. Deming on Sitting Bull's mysterious death

It's some of the finest writing on some of the most hair-raising journeys ever made, all selected by the late George Plimpton, himself a member of The Explorers Club.
