Summary
Profiles twelve women explorers throughout history, including Sacagawea, who was a guide to Lewis and Clark, and Matty McNair and Denise Martin, who led the first all-women expedition to the North Pole. Extraordinary Women Explorers takes the reader across tens of thousands of miles over four continents, up to the top of the world, and through the extraordinary lives of twelve women. Their stories begin with Sacagawea, guide to the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1805, and end in the present, with Mattie McNair, leader of Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. These are stories of the adventure, courage, daring and determination of women who found a way to live their dreams
