Description

Matthew Henson & Robert Peary is specifically written to meet the needs of adolescents and adults who are reluctant readers. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easy to decode. This high-interest, low-vocabulary biography is ideal for English as a Second Language or adult basic education students. Robert Peary (1856-1920) and Matthew Henson (1866-1955) opened up the gateway to the North Pole. Peary, an engineer in the U.S. Navy, and Henson, born to poor black parents who were sharecroppers, both loved adventure and exploring. Their paths in life crossed and after three attempts, in 1909 Henson and Peary became the first people to reach the North Pole. Lexile level: 420L
