A nice addition to any collection

A biography of Sir Walter Raleigh beginning in 1595 and focusing on his search for El Dorado. I appreciated the cast of characters at the beginning - a helpful reference. Contains good black and white illustrations, and is recommended for parents, teachers and students in the 5th grade.
