“Relates the enterprises and discoveries of twelve explorers: da Gama, Cook, ibn-Batuta, Champlain, Marquette, Mackenzie, Lewis and Clark, Frémont, Peary and Henson, and Amundsen. . . . The narrative is lucid, fast-paced, and in a logical order. This is a book for research or to simply read. Highly Recommended.”
