Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

This rough-and-ready handful are among the first titles in the publisher's new "Great Journeys" series, which excerpts parts of larger travel journals. The Shackleton, for example, was culled from his 1919 South: The "Endurance" Expedition. As the titles show, these works cross all parts of the globe and climates, from lush jungles to frozen wastes to soaring mountains, and generally offer the most exciting parts of each explorer's travels.
