In this volume, celebrating the centennial of this amazing Society, award-winning author C.D.B. Bryan covers the entire history of the Geographic, focusing on the personalities behind it - from Gardiner Greene Hubbard and Alexander Graham Bell, to three generations of the Grosvenor family, to flamboyant explorers and innovative photographers and writers. The historical narrative, giving the reader a sense of the past 100 years, alternates with theme sections of pictorial material - polar exploration, natural disasters, glorious expeditions, archaeology and conservation, among others.
