Expedition

Shine a light into the unknown. There are still dark corners of our planet that are yet to be explored. In this remarkable book, Steve Backshall offers an unflinching account of his adventures into these uncharted territories around the globe, in search of world firsts. Each location brings its own epic challenges – whether it’s the first climb of an arctic ice fall in Greenland, the first recorded navigation of a South American river, or the first exploration of the world’s longest cave system in Mexico. But all of them represent new tests of the limits of human endeavour. Accompanying a major 10-part series on BBC and Dave, Expedition is a breathtaking journey into the unknown, and a brilliantly written celebration of the pleasures of genuine discovery.

This event is free of charge but fans are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Fans must have a copy of ‘Expedition’ in order to meet Steve.. For further information contact Waterstones Bluewater on 01322 624831

Bookseller Becca Tye says “We’re so looking forward to this signing; he’s always so interesting and his fans are incredibly enthusiastic. We’re anticipating a fun and lively event.
