Explorers have traveled the world and have been helped throughout the centuries by the inhabitants of the lands they visited. People have offered outsiders lodging, carried their belongings, paddled their canoes, showed them amazing animals, and often housed, clothed, fed, rescued, and cured them. This series tells you about these people and the explorers with whom they interacted.

Grade 4-6?Two attractive and informative series entries. The history, politics, culture, and religions of India and Africa are presented in an accessible and focused manner through the use of double-page topic treatments. Chronologically arranged, the titles discuss the areas from ancient times to the 20th century, including the individuals and empires that influenced their exploration and development. For example, Ganeri includes a discussion of the Greek presence in India; Ibazebo describes the African slave trade and the impact it had on the history of the continent. Beautiful full-color and black-and-white photographs and fine-art reproductions are plentiful in both volumes. Clear and detailed maps document the areas at various periods throughout history. Solid overviews for reports and pleasure reading.?Ann M. Burlingame, North Regional Library, Raleigh, NC
