Explorers have come from every corner of the Earth and every walk of life. Throughout history, there have been many brave men and women who have discovered new lands, hidden treasures, and new routes for travel and further exploration. The World of Exploration touches on pretty much everything, from Arctic expeditions to desert exploration, from Lewis and Clark who forged across America to John McDougal Stewart who crossed Australia for the first time. Many explorers were searching for solutions to problems, whether it was to improve trade routes or expand into new territories for economic reasons, but many were simply on a quest for adventure, yearning to venture into the unknown. Regardless of the reasons, no stone is left unturned in this book. Readers will find this book hard to put down because each page brings something new, unexpected, and surprising, just as the expeditions themselves. Filled with fascinating snippets of information and well-placed artwork and photographs, this book was well thought out and superbly written. Readers especially interested in history and science will find The World of Exploration exceptionally fun and intriguing. 2006, Kingfisher Publications, Ages 9 to 14.
