- from Explorers
Humans are exploring creatures. Some explorers have set sail across uncharted seas, and others have trekked across forbidding deserts or through dense jungles. Some have returned to tell their stories, but others have not.
Some explorers are driven by the desire for wealth and fame. Others explore simply for the thrill of it, while still others explore to collect information about animals, plants, and people.
Kids Discover highlights the lives of seven brave explorers less famous than, say, Columbus. Yet each endured hardships that are difficult, if not impossible, to imagine. And each blazed a trail for those who followed.
For thousands of years, ships were the main transportation of explorers, but recently they have taken to the air.
