A fun, informative, chronological guide to the history of world explorers, this book profiles both ancient and recent explorers, including Alexander the Great, Kublai Khan, Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, Lewis and Clark, Wilfred Thesiger, and Yuri Gagarin. Combining entertaining fact and historical information with eye-catching illustration, author Gillian Clements places each explorer in the context of his or her own time with details of other important contemporary events and figures, the new inventions and technologies which were the springboards for their adventures, and the destinations that captured the world's imagination at that time.
