Explorers - Discover More (Paperback) Penny Arlon (author)
Exploration is far from over. There are vast areas of our oceans still undiscovered, and the whole universe to explore. There has never been a more exciting time in human space travel as we endeavour to land man on Mars and embark on an era of space tourism. If Magellan died on his famous round the world journey, who was in his boat when it returned having completed the trip? Where did first inhabitants of the Polynesian islands come from and how did they get there? From the famous explorers; Hillary, Amundsen, Lewis and Clark, and present day explorers, to the people whose fascinating stories have been lost in history, such as Jeanne Baret who became the first woman to circumnavigate the globe and Matthew Henson, the first African American Arctic explorer.
