Get lost in this beautiful love letter to camping, exploring and the great outdoors

Published on: 22 March 2019

These notebooks and sketches, written by an "unknown adventurer", were found in a sealed metal container in a remote hut on the banks of the Jari River. Now their wonderful wisdom been put together in a book for the whole family to enjoy. 



On an expedition to the Amazon, outdoor enthusiast Teddy Keen stumbled across a sealed metal container. Inside the box were tattered sketchbooks and survival notebooks by an unknown adventurer, full of details of their extraordinary adventures and escapes, expedition advice and survival methods.

Now children (and adults!) everywhere can discover top practical tips from how to camp in the wild, create your own rafts, make different types of shelters and what to bring along for an essential first aid kit.

Along with magnificent illustratings, The Lost Book of Adventure (Frances Lincoln) is a detailed and in-depth book that you can lose hours in. And it will leave you asking this question, too: where is the Unknown Adventurer now...?
