In Impossible Journeys, Mathew Lyons explores the bravest, most fantastic, and outlandish voyages undertaken across the centuries and over many continents - regardless of whether the journeys were possible or not.
With great humour and gripping narrative, Lyons re-imagines these intrepid, hopeful voyages, re-telling extraordinary quests and examining man's need for finding, climbing, sailing, crossing, and conquering.
Some are journeys to places that no longer exist, others are false journeys: explorations to places that never existed, though explorers thought they did. Then there are the journeys that were impossible, even if people claimed to have made them, and the absurdly dangerous journeys that were supposed to be impossible but weren't!
Did anyone find Utopias or Nonesuch? Who walked from London to India several centuries ago? Impossible Journeys has the answers.
