This is a book that will make anyone fall in love with history, map making, and the written word.


The Road to There: Mapmakers and Their Stories
Val Ross
From Cassini to Mercrator, Captain Cook to Cheng Ho, this book follows the lives of some of the most extraordinary mapmakers of all time. Set in story form, it is often thought-provoking, lighthearted, and even occasionally humorous. Through the ancient to modern-day times, man has ever quested to know what laid beyond the horizon. As is shown in this beautiful contribution to honor them.

I Am An Otter

You're an otter, mate! Another good friend of Redwall, you are a natural swimmer and a deadly fighter especially with a long bow or javellin. Camp Willow is your home, just as Redwall is your second home. You have a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty. You absolutely love Shrimp and Hotroot soup, living by the motto "Ain't nothing 'otter for an Otter!".
