Summary
Exploring North America tells of the many ventures it took to map out this vast country - from the Spanish treasure-hunters and their quest northwards from Mexico in search of gold, to De Soto's journey from Florida and his discovery of the Mississippi River, to Lewis and Clark's expedition from the east coast to the west coast. You will read about why the explorers set out, how they traveled, hazards they encountered along the way, and more. Clear maps and superb reconstructions bring these journeys vividly to life.
