||I love finding books that tell me
about people I would never have heard about. This is
the story of a woman named Marie Tharp. She lived at
a time when women were not encouraged to learn about
science. But she was fascinated by maps. Her
father was a map maker and she often helped him. She
was curious about what was under the ocean. No one
knew. Was it flat or were there mountains that no
one could see? She wanted to know but no one would
let her go out and explore. That didn't stop her
though. Find out how she used science to not only
map the ocean floor, but to prove an important theory
about the earth.
