Come and meet world famous explorer and local resident John Blashford-Snell who will be talking about his new book
From Utmost East to Utmost West : My life of exploration and adventure
'Without doubt JBS, as many know him, is one of the world's most eminent explorers' - Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Bt. OBE.
For over 60 years John Blashford-Snell has been exploring some of the planet's most remote, inaccessible and dangerous places; his name is known globally for his daring adventures and intrepid journeys of discovery. Now well into his eighties (and still planning future trips), he has gathered together in a single volume a collection of tales from Africa, Asia and the Americas, a mix of mostly new writing combined with some old favourites, extracts from some of the 100 or so expeditions he has led in pursuit of archaeological, anthropological, botanical, biological and zoological objectives.
