Packing an impressive amount of detail into each chapter, 10 Explorers Who Changed the Worldexplores the life stories and achievements of ten adventurers from around the world and all eras. With "life links" showing how one explorer is connected to the next, whether by linked history or common themes, the interconnected nature of history is clearly shown. Exciting graphic-novel style illustrations and fascinating biographies are perfect for engaging history fans; read about Marco Polo, Magellan, Samuel de Champlain, Meriwether Lewis, Roald Amundsen, Jacques Cousteau and others. 64 pages with index and glossary, hardcover with dust jacket.
Everyone knows who Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus were. But do they know that Christopher Columbus owned a copy of Polo’s book The Travels of Marco Polo, full of Columbus’s own handwritten notes that served as inspiration and research for his famous journey? This amazing link and nine more are the basis for this highly original look at great explorers. By drawing a line from Polo and Magellan to Lewis and Clark and right down to Jacques Yves-Cousteau, readers will never think about history the same way again.
