Amazing Tales of the World's Greatest Adventures
Meet famous explorers and adventurers in this exciting non-fiction audiobook for children. Venture into steaming jungles in search of lost temples, fight off frostbite in the Arctic, and blast off into space!
Great explorers have one thing in common - a desire to leap into the unknown, no matter how dangerous that might be. From Ferdinand Magellan's first circumnavigation of the world 500 years ago to Barbara Hillary's treks to the North and South poles while in her seventies, Explorers documents the trials and hardships of the men and women who rewrote our understanding of the world, and showed us what humans are capable of.
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. 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 audiobook for any budding young adventurer.
