Henry Hudson: Seeking the Northwest Passage; Francisco Pizarro: Journeys through Peru and South America "...There is no sugar-coating of how either of these explorers treated the natives they encountered, their own men, or even their colleagues, in the struggle for power and prestige. Readers who enjoy information in chunks and pieces will take to these volumes...with many renderings of journeys taken, sights seen, and events unfolded, as well as sidebars containing helpful timelines. Each volume contains a handy glossary and index....Recommended for grades 4-7." —Catholic Library World, 12/05
