Explorers and Exploration will quickly become your essential resource for works of fiction and nonfiction that support history, geography, and cross-cultural studies. Each of the 10 chapters in this book covers a specific episode in exploration from the last 1,000 years. The episodes focus on the individual explorers, the reasons or objectives behind their explorations, and the locale. The brief and exciting narratives that open each chapter are balanced discussions of the motives, personalities, and results of each episode. Every chapter concludes with a complete annotated bibliography of fiction and nonfiction titles and suggests ways of using each title with students. In addition, students can use the book for basic information and as a tool for theme study projects.
