Redmond O'Hanlon is an explorer in the nineteenth-century mould. In addition to his two best-selling travel books he has published scholarly works on nineteenth-century science and literature. For fifteen years he was the Natural History editor of The Times Literary Supplement. He lives outside Oxford with his wife and two children.
