Great Explorers

Here are the stories of nine great adventures and the lives of the men who took part in them. They pushed back the frontiers of man's knowledge of the world by their vision, courage, and sheer doggedness. They were very different people, from bold adventurers facing the unknown with enjoyment to careful, more scientific individuals. Their journeys are placed within their historical context, but also contain the words of the men themselves.

Audible Editor Reviews

The lives and accomplishments of 10 great explorers (or explorer duos) are celebrated in this work for young adults. Among those whose lives and accomplishments are described are such stalwarts as Marco Polo and Columbus. Also considered are the great Moslem explorer Ibn Battuta and the Apollo 11 mission. Three British narrators perform these vignettes and the introduction very competently. They're all expressive, clear, and disciplined in their narrations. Transitional music and sound effects add to the production.
