This book is in good condition and shows normal wear to cover and corners. Pages are crisp and bright. Peter Mancall has skillfully juxtaposed narratives of voyages to Africa, Asia, America and Europe over two hundred years. He lets us see the world through European eyes-though a few non-Europeans tell their fascinating tales-and inspires us to think anew about the uses of description. -Natalie Zemon-Davis, author of Trickster Travels: A Sixteenth-Century Muslim Between Worlds.

Getting close to a book was an exciting but dangerous adventure. Slaves allied to Native Americans in the 19th century. Sarah Breedlove became an orphan at the age of seven after both her parents died from yellow fever. The Underground Railroad was neither underground nor it was a railroad.

The Underground Railroad was a code name and a system used to escape slavery from 1820 to 1861. Sarah was a mother at 17, to a baby girl called A’Lelia.

The Discovery of America is a trilogy written by the German author and .

The Discovery of America is a trilogy written by the German author and educator Joachim Heinrich Campe (1746-1818). The work is counted among the first books of specific children's literature, directly targeting children and adolescents as its main audience, and Campe said to have "set the standard for German children's literature. The trilogy is defined by its author's involvement in the German educational movement of philanthropinism and has been a great success, also being translated. The explorations of the Central American mainland are followed by encounters with Native tribes, some of which become Cortés’ allies in his later conquest of the Aztec empire.

Inventing Americans in the Age of Discovery traces the linguistic, rhetorical, and literary innovations that emerged out of the first encounters between Europeans and indigenous peoples of the Americas. Through analysis of six texts, Michael Householder demonstrates the role of language in forming the identities or characters that permitted Europeans (English speakers, primarily) to adapt to the unusual circumstances of encounter. Arranged chronologically, the texts examined include John Mandeville's Travels, Richard Eden's English-language translations of the accounts of Spanish and Portuguese discovery and conquest, George Best's account of Martin Frobisher's voyages to northern Canada, Ralph Lane's account of the abandonment of Roanoke, John Smith's writings about Virginia, and John Underhill's account of the Pequot War. Through his analysis, Householder reveals that English colonists did not share a universal, homogenous view of indigenous Americans as savages, but that the writers, confronted by unfamiliar peoples and situations, resorted to a mixed array of cultural beliefs, myths, and theories to put together workable explanations of their experiences, which then became the basis for how Europeans in the colonies began transforming themselves into Americans.
