The Royal Geographical Society has been giving help and advice to the scientific and adventurous since 1830. This book is the distillation of many years of experience and expertise, and is packed full of practical information and advice from planning, fundraising, and insurance to cures for amoebiasis, tapeworms, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. It explains why divers shouldn’t wear gloves, why sharpening machetes can affect navigation in the rainforest, and how aluminium foil can be useful in the desert. It covers every part of the world, from mountains and glaciers to savannah and jungle.
