Explorers searching for a New World found a continent teeming with life and opportunity. Readers will learn how humanity pushed to the edges of the Earth in the quest for knowledge. They will also learn about the exploits of famous explorers such as Francisco Pizarro and Americo Vespucci while full-color photographs show the continent in stunning detail. Fact boxes add depth to every expedition and journey, while glossary terms and further information give readers an in-depth examination of this exciting topic.

From Booklist:

Each volume from the Explorers Discovering the World series looks at the exploration of a large region through two- or four-page chapters focused on individual men or areas explored. A spread typically features a few clearly written paragraphs of text, a sidebar, a factoid box, and two or three colorful, captioned pictures, such as portrait paintings, clearly reproduced photos, and illustrations from different periods. Since the only maps are decorative rather than useful, readers attempting to trace the routes of the explorers or to find places mentioned in the text will have to look elsewhere. Most of the books focus on European men, though their actions are not always shown in a positive light. While women travelers are occasionally mentioned, the contributions of nonwhite explorers and inhabitants are seldom acknowledged. South America includes Spanish conquistadors, Portuguese explorers, English privateers, and a German naturalist. Larger libraries may want to consider individual series volumes, as needed. Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan
