Review: Founded more than 112 years ago "for the increase and diffusion of geographic knowledge," the National Geographic Society has chronicled the exploits of some of the most famous explorers of the 20th century, and often helped fund those efforts. Roald Amundsen and Robert Byrd. Hiram Bingham and Howard Carter. Charles Lindbergh and Alan Shepard. Jacques Cousteau. Edmund Hillary. Will Steger. Bob Ballard. John Glenn. In addition, the Society has reported on a different sort of explorer: anthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey, for example, primatologists Dian Fossey and Jane Goodall, and archaeologists such as Matthew Stirling and Kent Weeks. National Geographic Expeditions Atlas, illustrated with hundreds of historic and contemporary photographs and more than 60 maps (both vintage and new), celebrates the achievements of Society luminaries. Some, like mountaineer Barry Bishop and diver Luis Marden, have been staff members. Many have contributed to the Society's official journal, National Geographic magazine: Amazonian explorer Loren McIntyre, for example; divers Sylvia Earle and David Doubilet; adventurer-scientists Joseph Rock and Roy Chapman Andrews; cartographer Bradford Washburn; mariners Amos Burg and Robin Lee Graham. Also part of Geographic's family: winners of the Hubbard and Grosvenor Medals, and recipients of the nearly 7,000 grants awarded by the Society over the past century to support scientific and geographic explorations. National Geographic Expeditions Atlas is dedicated not only to all Geographic explorers past and present, but also to the enduring spirit that makes such expeditions possible: an insatiable thirst for knowledge about our planet and everything in it.

(Foreword) An early childhood spent among the physical and biological wonders of northern California soon led me to treasured copies of National Geographic - copies that led me well before I was ten years old to appreciate Roy Chapman Andrews's motorized expeditions of the Gobi, the variety of butterflies in the United States and the thrill of collecting and understanding them, animals on the plains of Africa, the awesome beauty of the world's polar regions, and even an introductory glimpse of the tropical rain forests that would occupy so much of my attention later in adult life.
(Introduction) Perhaps today - perhaps next year - a one-passenger sumarine named DeepWorker will slip into saltwater and head toward the ocean floor, a tool for new scientific discoveries.
"Had there been wind, would not be talking to you now," said Barry C. Bishop, one of six men who achieved the summit of Mount Everest in May 1963, as part of the first successful American expedition to the world's highest peak.
