Great book. I really like all the different pop quizes put in here and there. This book has many different stories on many different explorers, From 500 years ago or as early as 1908.

My favourite explorer was Marco Polo because he traveled to a desert and he made it to the other side without being captured by bandits. I liked how the book talked about new explorers in each chapter.
