Henry Holt and Company
What happened in America after Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue? In this latest outing, Tony Horwitz (Blue Latitudes) takes us on a thrilling and eye-opening adventure in Pre-Mayflower America. It's not so much Roanoke, Jamestown and Plymouth that interest him (though they are included too), it’s the places associated with forgotten explorers, many of them Spanish, like Erik the Red (Vinland gets the first chapter), Henry Hudson, Verrazano, De Soto, Cabeza de Vaca, Cortes and Balboa. Horwitz rescues whole chapters of early America from the dustbin of history in this rich mix of wit, scholarship and modern-day adventure.
