Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: As Europe emerged from the psychological restrictions of the Middle Ages, the new learning of the Renaissance emboldened a handful of adventurers to seek new horizons across the ‘Ocean Sea’. And so began the Age of Discovery. A story of intense passion, rivalry, and excitement, it is still seen as one of the greatest periods of global discovery. In this readable study of the subject, re-discover Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama’s search for a sea route to the Indies, John Cabot’s exploration of North America, and Ferdinand Magellan’s circumnavigation of the globe. Historical Atlas of Exploration contains a superb selection of contemporary illustrations and 70 detailed full color maps that follow each explorer on his travels. Discover with them the wonders of the New World, the Pacific Islands, the Indies, the Spice Islands, and mysterious, colorful Asia.
