The Atlas of Exploration is a graphic record of humankind's journeys of discovery, from the earliest mariners to today's missions to explore the planets of the solar system. A series of detailed maps tells the story of all the greatest feats of exploration from the crossing of continents to the navigation of the seas and the circling of the globe. The lively text describes the faith and the perseverance, the hardship and suffering, the close escapes and moments of triumph that accompanied the remarkable odysseys of discovery. Each chapter is devoted to a particular region or continent and the journeys that led to its discovery. Detailed histories, text boxes, and maps describe single journeys or series of journeys, such as the transatlantic routes of Christopher Colombus or the exploration of America by Lewis and Clark. Informative text and illustrations tell the story of each journey and how it fits into the whole story of exploration.
