When Columbus reached the continent of America, where on earth did he think he was? How did a spell in jail make Marco Polo famous? History is full of men and women who have stepped into the unknown, travelled further than anyone has gone before, discovered new lands and claimed new territories. This book is one of a series which takes an irreverent look at some of the more spectacular events and people through history. Each double-page spread relates the lives of intrepid explorers such as Marco Polo, Captain Cook, Magellan and Drake, Isabelle Eberhardt, Hernando Cortes, Burke and Wills, Livingstone and Stanley, Amundsen and Scott, Ibn Battuta, Columbus and Cabot and Mary Kingsley. Some were cruel, some were kind, but all were brave men and women in search of an extraordinary adventure.
