Living Geography Books for Form 4 Students (Grade 9)
Chasing Shackleton (2014) is a real-life recreation of Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 expedition to the South Pole. The PBS show is that goes with it is outstanding.
Richard Halliburton’s Book of Marvels (1937) is one of my son’s favorite geography books. If you haven’t read it yet, consider reading it now (or one of Halliburton’s other books). Please note there are some slight racial comments.
