- from Explorers
Humans are exploring creatures. Some explorers have set sail across uncharted seas. Other explorers have trekked across forbidding deserts or through dense jungles. Many explorers have returned to tell their stories, but others have not.
Some explorers are driven by their desire to get rich and famous. Others explore just because they like the thrill of seeing new things. And some people explore to collect information about animals, plants, and people.
Kids Discover highlights the lives of seven brave explorers. They are not as famous as someone like Columbus. But each of these people went through hard times that are difficult, if not impossible, to imagine. And each blazed a trail for those who followed.
To be an explorer, you have to travel. For thousands of years, ships were the main transportation for explorers, but recently they have taken to the air.
