Overview

Eccentric + Extreme

Get in the saddle for a rip-roaring ride as you follow in the tracks of ten eccentric explores - each on a quest to unlock the secrets of reclusive Tibet. Are they nuts? Are they crackers? You bet. Among them you will find:

mad Yorkshireman Maurice Wilson, who set his sights on being the first to climb Everest - and to speed things up, decided to try and crashland a biplane on the lower slopes...

secret agent Eric 'the Hatter' Bailey, who shot his way through Tibet, but who could be easily distracted - in the most life-threatening of situations-by the sighting of a new butterfly species...

the indomitable Alexandra David-Néel, an ex-opera singer who - when cornered by Tibetan bandits - let loose such a blood-curdling string of curses, they begged her to stop-fearing she was a wrathful demon...
