Question by journeymanjim: Any good books about explorers / exploring?
Hi, I was wondering if anyone can recommend any good novels about explorers, particularly ocean travel. Or nonfiction books/biographies about explorers during the age of discovery, ones with a lot of detail about the journeys they made. I’m writing a novel about some people who explore unexplored territory and wanted some inspiration from other books of this nature. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
