Atlas of travelers - Stories of expeditions to the ends of the world
Full of impressive illustrations and extraordinary adventures, this album is about explorers and travelers from different eras and different parts of the world. The book was awarded the prestigious BolognaRagazzi Award 2019.
On foot, on horseback, on the back of a camel, on board a ship - the daredevils have set off into the unknown for centuries to get to know the farthest ends of the Earth. They experienced extraordinary adventures and returned with stories about distant lands, their inhabitants and different cultures.
Meet them - travelers from ancient and not so ancient times. Monks, scholars and merchants, European, Chinese and Arab globetrotters. Famous, such as Marco Polo, Bartolomeu Dias, Alexander von Humboldt or Charles Darwin - and a little less known, and no less interesting, such as Pyteasz, Xuanzang, Ibn Battuta, Jan di Piano Carpini, Joseph Banks or women travelers: Jeanne Baret and Mary Kingsley . Read about their expeditions and see for yourself how powerful the desire is to see what is beyond the boundaries of the known world.
Have a nice trip!
