Editorial Reviews

This delightful history of the world's explorers celebrates adventurers from the past, present, and future—from the Polynesian sea travelers to Robert Peary's guest for the North Pole. Informative maps abound, and interesting biographical sketches of the history makers are offered, along with a "newspaper article" describing the adventure in the first person. This is an extremely well-presented and fun way to help young adventurers of today learn about their predecessors. Part of the "History News" series. 2001, Gareth Stevens Publishing, $16.95. Ages 10 to 12. Reviewer: E. Fox SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
