It took courage, ambition, and boldness to brave the Unknown. In the 1400s, much of the earth was unmapped. Europeans knew there were gold and spices in China and Japan, but they had no idea how to get there, or what they would run into on their way. Yet some men felt they were smart and brave enough to figure it out. Around the World in a Hundred Years examines the great wave of European exploration during the fifteenth century which resulted in more accurate maps. Ages 10 and up.
