Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-9 - What at first glance appears to be little more than an additional purchase is actually a concise and useful guide to virtually all of the explorers usually studied in public schools. Beginning with Leif Eriksson and his trip to Greenland and the Americas to Robert Ballard's 1985 expedition to search for the Titanic, the chronologically arranged spreads give readers a better understanding of how the world was explored and how information from each trip was able to help future expeditions. Informative black-and-white photos and reproductions appear throughout with an enlarged map segment showing the explorer's route(s) for each entry. This is an excellent quick resource that will appeal to researchers and general readers as well. - Carol Wichman, formerly at Northridge Local Schools, Dayton, OH

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like the way the book is organized chronologically and by continent/area. The stories are just long enough to have some interesting details, but short enough to be a quick read. This is a great book to help with history research projects on explorers.
