Explorers : amazing tales of the world's greatest adventurers
Huang, Nellie2019
Great explorers have one thing in common - a desire to leap into the unknown, no matter how dangerous that might be. From Ferdinand Magellan's first circumnavigation of the world 500 years ago to Barbara Hillary's treks to the North and South poles while in her seventies, Explorers documents the trials and hardships of the men and women who rewrote our understanding of the world, and showed us what humans are capable of. Explorers looks at the towering achievements of more than 50 explorers in great detail, with incredible cross-sections revealing the amazing detail inside Spanish galleons, lost cities, and spaceships. Hand-drawn maps reveal their intrepid journeys in great detail, and photographs highlight the artefacts and relics they found along the way. The explorers come from all walks of life and parts of the world. Packed with jaw-dropping facts and written in language that will get the heart racing, Explorers is the perfect book for any budding young adventurer, combining both beautiful illustrations by Jessamy Hawke and fantastic photography.
