Ron Tagliapietra’s Great Adventurers of the Twentieth Century
is a collection of short biographies of daring people who set amazing outdoor records without the aid of engines. Climbers, cavers, kayakers, and others with great physical courage and sometimes audacity do the incredible. Tagliapietra captures the adventures and the adventurers in a readable and engaging style, teaching geography along the way. Christian youth readers can accompany twenty-one brave heroes from all over the world as they set both records and good examples of tenacity and vision.
