9780778724629: Peary & Henson: The Race to the North Pole (In the Footsteps of Explorers)

Although prejudiced attitudes in the early 1900s prevented African American explorer Mathew Henson from receiving his equal credit, he and Robert Peary were true partners in the dangerous race to discover the North Pole. Intended for ages 8-14, this book describes how they survived exploration in the harsh climate of the Arctic.

Review:

..." There is no sugar-coating of how either of these explorers treated the natives they encountered, their own men, or even their colleagues, in the struggle for power and prestige. Readers who enjoy information in chunks and pieces will take to these volumes...with many renderings of journeys taken, sights seen, and events unfolded, as well as sidebars containing helpful timelines. Each volume contains a handy glossary and index....Recommended for grades 4-7."
