Adam and Lisa Murphy's award-winning series of graphic novels continues, interviewing the most ground-breaking explorers from history!

Journey around the world with Ferdinand Magellan, take to the skies with Amelia Earhart, and sledge through the coldest depths of a South Pole winter with Ernest Shackleton! But that's not all - discover both sides of the Conquistador story from Hernan Cortez and Malinalli, and meet Pythias, the Ancient Greek who 'discovered' Britain, among many others!
