Summary From misty tales of pre-Columbian landfalls to the epic struggles to reach the North Pole, the story of the exploration of North America spans centuries and cultures, as well as mountains, rivers, plains, and wasteland. Its heroes number in the thousands -- people whose willpower, fortitude, and physical endurance are all but unimaginable in the comfort-coveting twenty-first century. Their courage and cruelty, imagination and brute effort, triumphs and disasters, make for great drama as well as great history. North American Exploration distills this centuries-long saga of discovery into a single, authoritative, highly readable reference. Its lively accounts are arranged in seven sections, each covering a major area of exploration: North America before Columbus; the Spanish open up the New World; the Atlantic seaboard; west of the Mississippi; from the Appalachians to the Mississippi; across the North American continent; and the Arctic and northernmost regions.
Vivid narrative entries recreate the major expeditions and discoveries of each era, provide character sketches of major explorers, and present contemporary descriptions of Native nations, geographical features, and settlements that played a role in exploration. You'll meet such major figures as Lewis and Clark, Hernan Cortes, Henry Hudson, and Columbus himself. You'll also encounter scores of fascinating lesser-known explorers, including Alvar Cabeza de Vaca, who trekked 2,500 miles across Texas and Mexico without a map or even a plan, and Marguerite de la Roque, who survived being stranded on a remote Canadian island for two years. Supplemented with historical maps, photos, and illustrations, along with powerful first-person accounts from contemporary diaries, letters, reports, and newspapers, North American Exploration is completely up to date in both content and historical approach. This comprehensive, one-stop resource offers rich and rewarding reading for anyone who is fascinated by the relentless human urge to explore the unknown.
