Summary
Epic: Explorers focuses on 12 of the most incredible expeditions in history, from the ancient Egyptian voyage to the land of Punt around 1470 BCE to the Apollo mission to space in 1969; taking in Marco Polo's journey to China, the great 15th-century Chinese voyages, the Portuguese sailing around the Cape of Good Hope, the New World voyages, the circumnavigation of the globe, the mapping of the Pacific, the exploration of the American West, the exploration of Africa, the race to the South Pole and the descent into the Mariana Trench on the way. The book details the dates and location of each expedition, the people involved and the distances travelled. A timeline on every spread gives the key dates from each expedition, and what happened when. Explorers also looks at the technology and vehicles involved in each expedition, from the Chinese treasure ships and the American canoes to the skis and dog sleds used on the South Pole expedition, and the rocket that carried the astronauts to the Moon. The dangers the adventurers faced are also catalogued, from the deserts, robbers and storms Marco Polo braved on his journey to China, to the lions, crocodiles and diseases Stanley and Livingstone battled in Africa. Infographic elements on each spread present information in a simple and highly visual way. Clear, concise text and a bright, appealing design make the book the perfect resource for project work on exploration, geography or history, or simply a great leisure read, for children aged 9 and above
