About this title

Synopsis:

The Silk Road first brought Europeans to Asia for trade and changed the course of history. Readers will learn who explored the Asian peninsula and about the exploits of famous explorers such as Marco Polo and Ferdinand Magellan.Full-color photographs show the interesting landscapes and history 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. More inclusive than most books in the series, Arabia and Asia introduces explorers from China, Arabia, and Tunisia as well as many from Europe. Larger libraries may want to consider individual series volumes, as needed. Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan
