From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6?These chronologically arranged series titles begin with a description of the area's indigenous peoples and follow the impact that exploration and colonization had on them. By no means are the Europeans glorified, but they are presented fairly and objectively. Interspersed throughout the texts are marvelous full-color photographs, drawings, and simple maps that clarify the basic routes followed by some of the explorers mentioned in the text. Of course, attempting to reveal the entire history of the exploration of North America or Australia in fewer than 48 pages means that no more than a passing reference is made to any but the most prominent people and incidents. Also, the heavy emphasis on visuals results occasionally in things appearing out of context. But these are minor problems in what are overall satisfactory efforts. Children will most likely be motivated to look for additional information on some of the names and incidents they read about here. Focusing on a single continent, these books compare favorably with Antony Mason and Keith Lye's The Children's Atlas of Exploration (Millbrook, 1993; o.p.) and Neil Grant's The Great Atlas of Discovery (Knopf, 1992), both of which try to cover the world in just under 100 pages.?Linda Greengrass, Bank Street College Library, New York City
