Mapping the expeditions that shaped the world as we know it.
Every explorer is a true adventurer. Bound by a common curiosity for the unknown, the intrepid individuals featured in Explore the World traveled across land and sea gathering expansive knowledge of geography, climate, culture, flora, and fauna.
