Description: Begun in 1800, the magnificently conceived project of measuring a meridian, or longitudinal arc, up through nearly 2.000 miles of jungle, desert, and flood-plain, from the southern tip of India to the frozen wastes of the Himalayas, captured the imagination of a science-mad century.

The Great Arc of the Meridian was the longest inch-perfect measurement of the earth's surface ever attempted. It culminated in the discovery of the highest mountain in the world, named for the man who identified and measured its height, George Everest. Vividly resurrecting the 19th century's most ambitious scientific undertaking, The Great Arc recounts an exhilarating tale of astounding adventure and gigantic personalities.
