This 2 disc audiobook set covers over 2 and a half hours of stories featuring some of the world's greatest explorers. As a homeschooling Mom, this set has been a valuable resource. Our children have been able to learn without having to read in a book, they can listen anywhere (car, outside, their rooms, etc) and it helps make the lives of these great explorers seem real and personal and not just something they read about in History & Geography. I highly recommend this set to anyone who has children or families who homeschool.
I wonder whom the author had in mind writing this book - it is too boring for children, to superficial for adults. I listened to it (i always do before letting my child to listen) and put it at the bottom of the drawer - no use for it.
