Description

For centuries, the discovery and exploration of the New World fascinated European explorers. Those who visited the Americas brought with them the culture and politics of their homelands, along with diseases, religion, and social attitudes completely alien to indigenous populations. The sometimes-violent meeting of these cultures shaped the continuing exploration and development of the so-called New World. The biographies in this series detail the lives of the most noteworthy European explorers to cross the high seas, investigating their motivations, the effect their exploration had on indigenous peoples, and, in turn, the influence of New World culture on European society.show more
