“Includes the voyages and exploits of eight men regularly featured in school curricula—among them Columbus, Cortés, Champlain, and Scott. Like other titles in the series, this book will appeal to children who enjoy role-playing and “choose your adventure” books. . . . The illustrations, including route maps, are well chosen and well placed, and source notes for quotations are included. . . . [U]seful to student researchers and teachers looking for a way to bring relevance and immediacy into the classroom study of exploration.” —Booklist

Also includes Vasco da Gama, Ferdinand Magellan, James Cook, and Meriwether Lewis.
