A short, enjoyable children’s book, from the 1960s Step-Up Book series. Handsomely illustrated and easy to read, it covers legendary sailors from the Phoenicians through Joshua Slocum. In between are famous explorers, admirals and daredevils who risked their lives for knowledge and adventure. John Wymert’s colorful vignettes will entertain young readers, while adults can appreciate his dry humor. Recommended for budding history buffs.
