Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up–The information in this series on well-known and oft-written-about explorers is not necessarily new but it is presented in such a way as to attract and maintain readers' interest. Each title opens with a glimpse into a particularly thrilling or critical moment in the man's life, and then the chapters unfold chronologically. The explorers' triumphs and foibles are described in keen detail, with the common factors in their stories being the descriptions of the subjects' unending desire to see the world, do something no one else had done, and their unfailing determination. With a full complement of maps, photographs (where available), illustrations, time lines, and document reproductions, a full story is told. Well-written and thoroughly researched, this series will make a solid addition.
