Into the Unknown
How Great Explorers Found Their Way by Land, Sea and AirBook - 2011
Since the beginning of time, humans have wondered what lay beyond the horizon. The bravest left their homes and set out--into the unknown. But how did they find their way? What did they travel in? How did they survive harsh weather, hunger and other terrible dangers? Starting in 340 BC with Pytheas the Greek--who sailed to the Arctic Circle without so much as a compass--and ending in 1969--when the crew of Apollo 11 landed on the moon in a spaceship--author Stewart Ross and artist Stephen Biesty went on an adventure of their own to find out.
