From Booklist:

Reviewed with K. C. Smith's Shipwrecks of the Explorers.

Gr. 5-7. Despite the dramatic titles, these two books in the Watts Library--Shipwrecks series are not about Titanic -like disasters but about underwater archaeology: how scientists find and excavate wrecks and what the lost ships and boats tell us about the people who traveled in them long ago. The history is exciting and so is the archaeology. The cover painting on the Native American book is like a generic picture postcard, but Delgado writes with authentic detail about particular ancient cultures. He focuses on the voyages they made and the boats they used, some of which are still being made today. Smith's book is as much about exploration and settlement through history as it is about today's exploration of evidence from ships that were lost at sea. She talks about particular voyages, including those of Columbus and of Amundsen, and recent archaeological projects. The books are profusely illustrated with color photos and prints on every spread, and the design is spacious, with short chapters and lots of colored screens. A glossary, a bibliography, and personal source notes show the writers' extensive experience. Hazel Rochman

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-7-A travel-guide approach to introducing fifth-century B.C.E. Greece that provides general background, cultural influences, climate, cities to visit, monetary system, local customs, food, accommodations, shopping, etc. A short who's who of famous people and some simple activities wrap up this clever, readable volume. The pages have a parchment appearance, and the colorful photographs of artifacts and maps are useful and eye appealing. Special topic boxes add related, sometimes amusing trivia to subject areas. Julie Ferris's Sightseers Ancient Greece (Kingfisher, 1999) offers much of the same information in a similar format. However, this new title contains more extensive material in an attractive package.-Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, OR
