Developed by Academy Award winner Kevin Costner, this is a magnificently produced, illustrative adventure story about a clandestine society of rogue voyagers on a mission to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world. Behind the staid public rooms of an old world gentlemen's club operates a more mysterious organization: The Explorers' Guild, a clandestine group of adventurers who bravely journey to those places in which light gives way to shadow and reason is usurped by myth. The secrets they seek are hidden in mountain ranges and lost in deserts, buried in the ocean floor and lodged deep in polar ice.
The aim of The Explorers' Guild: to discover the mysteries that lie beyond the boundaries of the known world. Set against the backdrop of World War I, with Western Civilization on the edge of calamity, the first installment in The Explorers' Guild series, A Passage to Shambhala, concerns the Guild's quest to find the golden city of Buddhist myth.
