Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Interest in and speculation about the ends of the earth date back to the time of the ancient Greeks. By the early 1900s few frontiers remained to be explored. Once the North Pole was reached in 1909, a competition arose among explorers from different countries to be the first to reach the South Pole. Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian, led the first successful expedition reaching his goal in 1911. Although early explorers reached the Arctic Circle, the Antarctic Circle did not begin to take shape until the voyages of discovery in the 1400s and 1500s. Major historical milestones and details about the search for the southernmost tip of the world are related in a readable narrative. This factual account is clearly written and accompanied with both black and white and color photographs. Profiles of four of the major explorers, reproductions of some of their significant journal entries, and inset boxes of supplemental information aid in understanding. Includes a table of contents, a timeline, end notes, a bibliography, and an index. A good reference source for middle school students. Part of the "Great Expeditions" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
