Overview


The Picture History of Great Explorers is a fun, informative, and chronological guide to the history of world explorers that covers a wide range of figures: the well-known and the all-but-forgotten, men and women, even a couple of Russian space dogs. It begins with the ancient explorers such as Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, treks on through to Magellan and Drake, continues with Lewis and Clark and John C. Frémont, and comes right up to the present day with Ranulph Fiennes. Each page puts an explorer in the context of his or her own time with details of other important contemporary events and figures, the new inventions which were the springboards for their adventures, and the areas of the world which were capturing people’s imaginations. Gillian Clements explains the reasons behind exploration and how technology and exploration have gone hand-in-hand throughout history. Combining entertaining fact and historical information with amusing, eye-catching illustrations, the book is a delight for readers of any age.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is an excellent introduction to the world of exploration. Clear, concise language describes the travels and discoveries of humankind from the dawn of time to our current space age. The famous explorers such as Marco Polo, Magellan, Columbus, Cook and Heyerdahl are only part of the contents. Lesser-known people, such as Martin Frobisher, Jakob Roggeveen, John Franklin, Mary Kingsley, Wilfred Thesiger and Sylvia Earle are also included. All the wonderful and attractive illustrations add greatly to the text. Time lines and sidebars provide still more factual data that should fascinate young readers and lead them to want to learn more. Teachers and librarians will find this book is a first-class tool to use with middle graders as they begin a unit on explorers. 2004, Publishers Group West, Ages 9 to 12.
