Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born to Explore is filled with skills, projects, and essential knowledge for the budding adventurer

Explorer extraordinaire Richard Wiese's more than one hundred excellent projects show how to have fun with science and nature, how to not always take the most walked path, and how to learn to "read" the natural world. Discovery does not occur just in the Amazon or deep in the ocean. It happens everywhere around us:

Navigate by the stars,
Tell time without a watch,
Start a fire without a match,
Make an igloo,
Build your own canoe,
And be prepared for any challenge.

About the Author

In 2002, Richard Wiese became the youngest president in The Explorers Club's one hundred-year history. He has tagged jaguars in the Yucatán jungles, captured crocodiles, and handled venomous snakes in Australia; achieved the first ascent of an unclimbed mountain in Alaska; discovered twenty-nine new life forms on Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa; and cross-country skied to the North Pole.
