A comprehensive survey of the lives, expeditions, and significant contributions of some 800 explorers from around the world, including the renowned (e.g. Roald Amundsen, Daniel Boone, Columbus, Magellan, and Marco Polo) and the lesser known but no less interesting (e.g. Edward Eyre, British sheep farmer who completed the first east-to-west crossing of Australia; and Freydis, Norse daughter of Eric the Red who led an expedition to Vinland). Includes some 120 bandw illustrations and period maps, 15 original maps, an appendix of explorers by region, and a bibliography. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
