Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamaica Johnson Conner
As part of the "In the Footsteps of Explorers" series, this book details the adventures and explorations of Robert Peary and Matthew Henson. Both Peary and Henson spent twenty years determined to reach the North Pole, and ultimately, they reached their goal. The content of this informational text is divided into eleven sections: "The Long Polar Night," "Jewel of the North," "The Early Years," "The Greenland Base," "Ellesmere Island Treks," "Life in the Far North," "Surviving the Pole," "The People of the North," "On Top of the World," "After the Expeditions," and "Polar Legacy." Bedesky also provides an index and a glossary defining important terms. The historical facts of Peary and Henson's journey are coupled with many colorful, visual images, illustrations, photographs, maps, a recipe, and more. Children who love researching history and dwelling on the accomplishments of everyday heroes will soak up the information provided in this piece. This is also an excellent resource for history teachers.
