We Are Explorers tells the stories of fourteen women whose adventurous spirit and curiosity saw them discover the world. Their exhilarating life stories are told by the equally adventurous author and illustrator Kari Herbert, whose father was the celebrated British polar explorer Sir Wally Herbert.
