Reviews

A true lesson in bravery and perseverance, this book will make your little one marvel at man's constant quest for exploration.
--The Washington Post

From the maps to the drawings of vessels and artifacts to the detailed cutaway views that make each bit of technology more understandable, Biestys well-labeled illustrations make this one of the most visually fascinating books available on explorers.
--Booklist

Ross and Biesty take readers on fourteen historical explorations... Although the human drive for discovery underlies each account, answering the 'how did they do that?' question becomes the focus of this remarkable book.
--The Horn Book (starred review)

Lively writing captures the excitement of exploration while providing just enough geographic and historical detail.
--School Library Journal (starred review)
