This fascinating book slips down the Silk Road with Marco Polo, joins David Livingstone in Africa trekking along the Nile, and braves the icy reaches of the polar regions. The full gamut of exploration is covered from the pioneering, westward trailblazing of Lewis and Clark, deep-sea diving with Jacques Cousteau, and following the footsteps of Roald Amundsen and Robert Scott.
Children will explore mapping techniques and discover how past explorers have made their mark. Whether it’s a simple survey of one’s own street or an adventurous round-the-world expedition, this is the perfect reference for any would-be explorer.
• An illustrated timeline places each exploration in its historical context
• Section on preparing for an expedition—choosing tools and equipment
