Kari Herbert

Heart of the hero


Signed! Kari's new UK edition gives a compelling insight into the relationships that became the foundation of some of our best-loved stories of adventure, from 1791 to the present day.

In her portraits of the gifted sculptor Kathleen Scott; eccentric traveller Jane Franklin; poet Eleanor Anne Franklin; Jo Peary, the first white woman to travel in the High Arctic; the determined Emily Shackleton; the Norwegian singer Eva Nansen; and her own mother, adventurer Marie Herbert, Kari Herbert blends personal accounts of longing, betrayal, and hope with stories of peril and adventure.
