Pack your bags-we're going on an incredible trip! TRAVEL WITH THE GREAT EXPLORERS takes you on some of the most remarkable journeys of exploration. Discover where the explorers went, why they went there, how they got there, and what went right and wrong along the way. Even among the Vikings, Leif Eriksson stood out. He was the son of an outlaw and adventurer. Leif grew up to be an adventurer too. Hearing stories of new lands to the west, he sailed across the North Atlantic Ocean and became the first European to reach North America-nearly 500 years before Italian explorer Christopher Columbus.
