Description: From Adventures on Trains author and British Book Award 221 winner Sam Sedgman comes a beautiful and fact-filled book encapsulating the excitement and wonder of adventure and travel - all seen through the world's most epic train journeys. So climb on board and travel across six continents, 34 countries and numerous cities via twelve of the world's most awe-inspiring railways. Bestselling author Sam Sedgman brings to life these astonishing feats of railway engineering, including the Eurostar (London to Amsterdam), Orient Express (Paris to Istanbul), the first Transcontinental Railroad (Chicago to San Francisco) and the Rejuvenation Express (Beijing to Hong Kong). Each locomotive adventure reveals some of the rich history, culture, landscape and wildlife of the countries travelled. Take in the safari sights of Southern Africa, wrap up warm in the Arctic Circle, cross scorching deserts on the California Zephyr, and taste tea in India whilst on a toy train - there's a whole world to discover when travelling by train! Detailed, colourful illustrations by Sam Brewster bring the facts and journeys to life. Epic Adventures will appeal to culture-, travel-, locomotive-fans of all ages.
