This eclectic history of exploration spans antiquity to the 1800s, encompassing times when new marvels might be waiting over the next hill, or a new world just over the horizon.

Meet Marco Polo, the 13th-century Venetian whose extravagant accounts of distant Cathay were mostly true; Sir John Mandeville, more a shameless exaggerator than an intrepid explorer; and John Wesley Powell, braving Colorado River rapids on the first trip through the Grand Canyon.

It's a fascinating looks at important discoveries through the eyes of the colorful, quirky explorers.
