Explorers looks at the towering achievements of more than 50 explorers in great detail, with incredible cross-sections revealing the amazing detail inside Spanish galleons, lost cities, and spaceships. Hand-drawn maps reveal their intrepid journeys in great detail, and photographs highlight the artefacts and relics they found along the way. The explorers come from all walks of life and parts of the world.

Packed with jaw-dropping facts and written in language that will get the heart racing, Explorers is the perfect book for any budding young adventurer, combining both beautiful illustrations by Jessamy Hawke and fantastic photography.Meet famous explorers and adventurers in this exciting non-fiction storybook for children.
