GREAT EXPLORERS OF THE WORLD Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, Vasco da Gama, Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan, Captain Cook, Lewis and Clark, Stanley and Livingstone, The Apollo Moon Mission

by | Read by Kerry Shale, Sam Dastor, Frances Jeater

Young Adult • 2.5 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

The lives and accomplishments of 10 great explorers (or explorer duos) are celebrated in this work for young adults. Among those whose lives and accomplishments are described are such stalwarts as Marco Polo and Columbus. Also considered are the great Moslem explorer Ibn Battuta and the Apollo 11 mission. Three British readers perform these vignettes and the introduction very competently. They're all expressive, clear, and disciplined in their readings. Transitional music and sound effects are appropriate, and the program notes are a welcome bonus. M.T.F.
