    Nine remarkable men produced inventions that changed the world. The printing press, the telephone, powered flight, recording, and other innovations have made the modern world what it is. But who had these ideas and made realities of them? As David Angus explains, they were very different: quiet, boisterous, confident, or withdrawn. But all had a moment of vision that they combined with single-minded determination to battle through numerous obstacles and produce something that really worked.

    Here are the stories of nine great adventures and the lives of the men who took part in them. They pushed back the frontiers of man's knowledge of the world by their vision, courage, and sheer doggedness. They were very different people, from bold adventurers facing the unknown with enjoyment to careful, more scientific individuals. Their journeys are placed within their historical context, but also contain the words of the men themselves.

    These are stories of massive struggles between good and evil, but they are enacted by gods whom the Egyptians thought of as very like themselves, prone to mistakes and a prey to common human failings.

    The shadowy figure of Robin Hood has been central to English folklore for centuries. Through time he has become the legendary English hero - living a life of splendid ease in the green wood, stealing from the rich to give to the poor, and vanquishing injustice in the shape of Prince John and the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. And this is how we present him in a collection of the best known stories.
