CONQUEST BY MAN

Exceptional in content and handling ""the saga of early exploration and discovery"" presents a fascinating story. From the ancient world, from the voyages of Viking and Greek on down through the vast network of explorations covering later centuries, there is the sense of the world opening up to the intrepid adventurers. While vast scholarship is evidenced in knowledge of the sources, the result is absorbing reading for modern travelers and students alike.
