This book takes children on a journey to the New World with the Vikings and Columbus, lets them discover animals in South America with Humboldt and find treasures in Tutankhamun’s burial chamber with Carter. And who were the first explorers at the South Pole and on Mount Everest? Adventurous journeys like these were undertaken for a variety of reasons: to increase power, to advance science or to attain glory. This book introduces children to their fascinating background stories.
