Traveling the world for National Geographic : photographs and stories by Thomas J Abercrombie( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"This is a story, a picture story, of two very lucky people before whom was spread out the greatest of treasures, the planet Earth. We traveled aboard a magic carpet, the one with the yellow borders, National Geographic magazine. During four decades we wandered over all the continents and left wakes across the seven seas." -- Thomas J. Abercrombie -- The Age of Discovery did not end with Columbus. Uncharted corners of the world still beckoned when Thomas J. Abercrombie began covering the globe for National Geographic in 1956. Tom's tenure at the Geographic occupied a unique moment in history-while planes and automobiles were shrinking the world, globalization had not yet taken hold. Tom and his wife Lynn visited lands and peoples, some of which, like the marsh Arabs of Iraq or the Buddhist monoliths in Afghanistan, would later be nearly or completely lost to the past. Tom's other assignments often brought him face to face with history, whether covering humanity's first winter at the South Pole, the voyage of the first and only white tiger to come to America, or the only manned dive ever to the deepest spot on Earth, the Mariana Trench. Here you can relive the enormous history and variety of Tom's experiences. From the deserts of Saudi Arabia to the jungles of Venezuela, and from the white sands of the Fiji Islands to sailing the Baltic Sea, Tom's ingenuity and adaptability was demonstrated time and again. In our book, you can see the challenges Tom faced and his resourceful solutions. Lynn, an accomplished photographer in her own right, traveled with her husband to many isolated and forbidding places. As a complement to Tom, Lynn's freelance contributions to the Geographic provided a feminine side to the story. Women and children felt more at ease being photographed by Lynn, and she was allowed to visit harems and other places off-limits to men
