This is a fun, informative, chronological guide to the history of world explorers.

The book begins with the ancient explorers such as Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, through to Magellan and Drake and comes right up to the 21st century with Ranulph Fiennes.

Each page puts an explorer in the context of his or her own time with details of other important explorers in that decade, the new inventions which were the springboards for their adventures and the world regions which were capturing people's imagination at that time.Gillian Clements includes the reasons behind exploration and how technology and exploration have gone hand in hand throughout history.

She combines fact and historical information with eye-catching illustration.
