A journey through history and across the planet, Voyagers shows how exploration has led humanity to the brink of destruction-and how it might help us face the challenges of the future.

From the beginning, we have been wanderers. Our explorations have rewarded us with land, resources, food and knowledge, but have also pushed planetary systems to breaking point-and still we seek new seas to fish, oil deposits to drill, forests to fell.

Award-winning science writer Lauren Fuge journeys from the fjords of the Pacific Northwest to the geology of outback Australia to the edges of the known universe, and asks- what drives our urge to explore? Can we find in our voyaging history the tools to reimagine our future?

Voyagers is an electrifying adventure, a compelling personal narrative, a hymn to the Earth-and a call to action.


PRAISE

'A beautiful, important book, charged with the questing rigour of science and the poetic hauntings of a restless spirit.' KIM MAHOOD

'Moving effortlessly from the immensity of planetary time to profoundly human questions about love and hope, Voyagers is a remarkable achievement.' JAMES BRADLEY

'Brilliant. This book holds questions that must be addressed as matters of physical urgency. Please read it. And please take up fighting for those questions as you can.' ASHLEY HAY
