"Sven Hedin"

As a child Hedin had witnessed the return of Erland Nordenskjöld from the Arctic and it inspired him to travel. He journeyed through Persia, the Pamir Mountains, Tibet and India, drove a car through Mongolia, and rode the Trans Siberian Express. He wrote many books and documents of his adventures.
