Perseus Publishing
The Picture History of Great Explorers is a fun, informative, and chronological guide to the history of world explorers that covers a wide range of figures: the well-known and the all-but-forgotten, men and women, even a couple of Russian space dogs. It begins with the ancient explorers such as Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, treks on through to Magellan and Drake, continues with Lewis and Clark and John C. Frémont, and comes right up to the present day with Ranulph Fiennes. Each page puts an explorer in the context of his or her own time with details of other important contemporary events and figures, the new inventions which were the springboards for their adventures, and the areas of the world which were capturing people’s imaginations. Gillian Clements explains the reasons behind exploration and how technology and exploration have gone hand-in-hand throughout history. Combining entertaining fact and historical information with amusing, eye-catching illustrations, the book is a delight for readers of any age.
