Trailblazers: Poems of Exploration

Slowly spin a globe. Notice how vast the oceans are! Yet airplanes can fly over them in a matter of hours. Imagine an earlier time. There are no maps. The globe is blank. What lies beyond the mountains, beyond the sea, beyond Earth's atmosphere? Who will risk life itself to find out? Who are making new discoveries right now? The brave men and women you'll meet in over 60 poems, some serious and some light-hearted in...Trailblazers: Poems of Exploration. You'll find dreamers, schemers, conquerors, patriots, pirates, scientists, teachers and even kids.
