Then, this is the book for you. The explorer list is extensive and includes: Henry Hudson, Mary Kingsley, Vasco da Gama, and James Cook. The chapters are divided by areas which were explored and include: the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Pacific, the Arctic and Antarctica, and space and the ea. Each explorer is covered in a detailed two- to three-page spread of text, map, and historical pictures. The book is a perfect supplemental and research text for grades fifth through eighth.
