Summary
"What do Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan, and Bartolomeau Dias have in common? They were all explorers who got lost! During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, just about every explorer who sailed beyond the horizon to find new land thought he knew where he was going. In fact, most got terribly lost and stumbled onto places unknown. Their discoveries may have been unintentional, but the lands they found altered the face of the globe and changed the course of human history. Fast-paced and exciting, Explorers Who Got Lost provides detailed information about the most influential explorers of the Age of Discovery: Bartolomeau Dias, Vasco Da Gama, Christopher Columbus, John Cabot, Ferdinand Magellan, Giovanni Da Verrazano, Jacques Cartier, and Henry Hudson. Lively and accessible illustrations (including portraits of the explorers, drawings, maps, routes, and diagrams of ships and navigational equipment), as well as a chronology, bibliography, and index make this book a valuable resource for young readers who are studying the Age of Exploration and Discovery"--
