'Trail Blazers: An Illustrated Guide to the Women Who Explored The World' written and illustrated by Lisa Graves is a picture book full of famous women explorers. I found it interesting and educational.
Starting with Jeanne Baret, the first woman to circle the entire globe, moving through Sacagawea and Edith Durham and Bessie Coleman, we are introduced to a group of women with varied backgrounds, but all possessing the bravery to learn about the world around them. There are botanists and pilots, historians and activists.
The 14 women in the book each get two pages of text and illustration devoted to them. There is also a reading list at the end and an encouraging foreword by the author. It's a great non-fiction book for younger readers.
I received a review copy of this ebook from X1st Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
