This book is the first in a series of non-fiction books for kids, highlighting the achievements and legacies of women you’ve never heard of!
Follow in the footsteps of twelve awesome women explorers, as they walk, run, ski and sail around the earth, fly into the sky, and rocket into outer space. From modern and ancient times, these women from different walks of life share a thirst for knowledge, a brave heart, and a yearning to explore.
Find out about Gudrid, who left her home in Iceland around a thousand years ago, sailing first to Greenland and then on to North America. Long before the Columbus, she was one of the first Europeans to sail to the Americas.
Centuries later, the polar explorer Louise Boyd inherited a fortune, and used it to discover the arctic, charting the seas, and performing scientific experiments on board her ship.
Mae Jemison left the earth, as the first African American woman to rocket into space – inspiring millions of little girls to reach for the stars.
These and other amazing women, who you’ve never heard of, have wonderful stories that deserve to be told and known. The book is illustrated with inspiring quotes.
