Summary
In the Devil May Care, popular historian and travel writer Tony Horwitz selects from the American National Biography fifty stirring lives of little-known adventurers who followed in no one's foot-steps and truly blazed their own trails. Filled with accounts of brushes with death and moments of glory, this collection offers a glimpse into the lives of historic men and women who brazenly faced danger as they followed their wanderlust and their convictions through forbidding environments to expand the reaches of maps and the limits of knowledge
