Description

Join fourteen incredible femaleexplorers on their journeysaround the world, and learnabout the life-changingdiscoveries they madeagainst all odds. Women have always explored the globe, but their stories aren't always well-known. In We Are Explorers, fourteen intrepid women and their incredible adventures finally get their due. These fearless explorers trekked across deserts in search of the source of the Nile, crept through jungles to discover rare butterflies, journeyed into the Arctic, and so much more. From the famed travels of Sacagawea to the lesser-known achievements of pioneers in aviation, botany, and mountain climbing, this book dives deep into the lives of women who changed the world. They hailed from places as varied as the United States, Japan, Germany, and New Zealand, but all of them followed their curiosity far from home-- astronaut Mae Jemison traveled into space! Critically praised author and illustrator Kari Herbert, herself the daughter of a celebrated polar explorer, brings these adventurers to life with an engaging narrative style and richly painted portraits. Readers will love stepping into the shoes of those who hiked, sailed, and flew to places few people--male or female--had been before. We Are Explorers is the perfect inspiration for any child who dreams of travel and adventure.
