Overview

Hands-on history for children interested in wilderness survival and the detail and adventure of real expeditions
History, adventure, and survival combine in this book about the most daring voyages made from the golden age of discovery to recent times. Young readers are introduced to the passionate and headstrong explorers who undertook these intrepid journeys and the challenges they faced.
Dividing the world into key types of terrain—polar, ocean, land, desert, river, sky, and space—the book relates the real-life stories of men and women from around the world and throughout history, from Christopher Columbus and Lewis and Clark to Amelia Earhart, Jacques Cousteau, and Yuri Gagarin. The fascinating background details such as expedition kits, supplies, and survival tips for the extreme conditions of each journey help children see how explorers pitted themselves against adversity to brave the wild and help shape our world.

    Most Daring Adventures!

    "Explore: The Most Dangerous Journeys of All Time" is a book that shows the famous explorers and incorporates history with adventure. It’s about many different people who discovered things and became famous for their journeys.

    I think people would enjoy this book because it teaches history and adventures and shows you how to survive different situations. The best part of this book is the side notes that the author put in the stories. They showed the important parts of the adventure. There were many pictures in the stories as well and they made the book more interesting.

    I think kids ages 8-12 would like this book. Kids who like to learn about history and visit museums would enjoy this book. I would rate this book as a 5 star. I enjoyed reading this.
