about

History, adventure, and survival combine in this book about the most daring voyages made from the golden age of discovery to recent times. Young readers are introduced to the passionate and headstrong explorers who undertook these intrepid journeys and the challenges they faced.

Dividing the world into key types of terrain—polar, ocean, land, desert, river, sky, and space—the book relates the real-life stories of men and women from around the world and throughout history, from Christopher Columbus and Lewis and Clark to Amelia Earhart, Jacques Cousteau, and Yuri Gagarin. The fascinating background details such as expedition kits, supplies, and survival tips for the extreme conditions of each journey help children see how explorers pitted themselves against adversity to brave the wild and help shape our world.
