Editorial Reviews

Review

...a mini museum between the covers of a book. [Eyewitness series] -- The New York Times

These books' striking visual impact will draw in even the most casual readers. [Eyewitness series] -- School Library Journal

From the Inside Flap

Full-color photos. Here is a stunning visual examination of the history of exploration, covering not only the earliest voyages around the Mediterranean and the mapping of the New World but also the latest discoveries under the sea and out in space. "A most helpful book for introducing readers of any age, especially young readers, to the topic of human exploration throughout human history."--(starred) Science Books and Films.    --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
