Find out about far-flung countries, the highest mountains, the deepest seas, and even outer space with Explore the World. Every explorer is a true adventurer: they all have in common a curiosity for the unknown. Across hundreds of years, they drew maps and gathered expansive knowledge of geography, climate, flora and fauna. The expeditions that shaped the world we are living in are gathered in this illustrated compendium. Explore the World features a variety of explorers, from Europeans searching for new trade routes to Polynesians exploring the many islands in the South Pacific. Sail with the vikings, meet the sherpas climbing up Mount Everest, and get to know the astronauts who dared to fly into space. Explore the World shines a light on the people that made these adventures possible with their knowledge of land and language, and tells the stories of teamwork, bravery and curiosity.
