Using geography, history, and biography, these books detail the routes that these explorers followed, the navigational equipment that they used, and the challenges that they faced, to create compelling documents of adventure and discovery. Students will come away from these books with a greater understanding of the individual lives of these explorers, the ways in which history and geography affect one another, and the difficult issues involved when one country claims a land that is already occupied by an indigenous population.In this book students learn about the history of Elizabethan England through the exciting life of Sir Walter Raleigh, who was sentenced to death three times, imprisoned in the tower of London twice, and never gave up his lifelong search for the City of Gold that he hoped to discover in South America.
