Description
How did the earliest sailors navigate? Who crossed the Australian continent first? What did the Egyptians find in the "Land of the Gods"? DK Eyewitness Books: Explorer takes a look at the worlds of Amelia Earhart, Jacques Cousteau, Marco Polo and other famous explorers, sharing real-life photographs of their equipment and personal possessions, as well as objects they found. Readers will see arrows shot into Livingstone's boat, Spanish conquistadors gold, and insect specimens brought back by naturalist explorers and gain an understanding of the extraordinary explorations that helped shape our world today.

The most trusted nonfiction series on the market, Eyewitness Books provide an in-depth, comprehensive look at their subjects with a unique integration of words and pictures. The story of exploration -- from early expeditions to high-tech trips into space -- is presented in vivid visual detail in this intriguing guide.
