The new series, They Changed the World, is intended to give history life by retelling the stories of certain people who lived in the past, in language that readers at the junior-high level can understand. The present volume, the first in the series, contains accounts of the lives of some 75 men and women whose actions and discoveries helped shape the modern world. These people were explorers, adventurers, settlers, warriors, priests, and scientists, some well known, others virtually forgotten. They include not only Europeans and Americans but also Asians, Africans, and Native Americans. Thoroughly illustrated. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
