I (1971) receive scant attention, while the possibly pre-Columbian efforts of Bristol fishermen to exploit the Newfoundland cod banks, French attempts to establish a St. Lawrence colony, and the stake-out of Virginia by Hakluyt and Raleigh are central to the book. Quinn contrasts Spanish incursions in Florida and the Southwest, based on direct exploitation of Indians and precious metals, with the French and British perspective of European settlement; their aims, he adds, were equally.

Records of European travel to North America begin with the Norse in the tenth century . In 985, they founded a settlement on Greenland (an often-overlooked part of North America) that persisted until the early 1400s. They also explored the east coast of Canada, but their settlements there were much smaller and shorter-lived.

This is a fantastic book. I'd gotten about 100 pages into reading The Course of Empire by Bernard DeVoto, but was very turned off the by the style of writing in that book, although there was some overlap between that and this book. The I found The New American Nation Series and read David M. Potter's book The Impending Crisis and loved it. I decided to try other books in the series out, this is my second read and is just as fulfilling as the first. Like Potter's book, it does not start from any assumptions and the first hundred or so pages track a little Indian history and Norse history. It traces innovations in shipbuilding and navigation, along with vigorous exploration of then distant lands around the same time by Spanish, Portuguese and French explorers. It seems the discovery of America by Europeans was inevitable, although their maps erred for quite some time in depicting the coast. The book traces about 100 years of attempts by the Spanish to first profit from and then establish a foothold on the continent - which didn't come until the success of St. Augustine as a colonial/mission settlement. It also traces the early exploration of the lower Mississippi River valley. The book follows French efforts to explore the St. Lawrence and Vinland areas - probably a little more ethically than the Spanish - failed attempts to thwart and establish their own settlements in Spanish Florida, and early English travels up the coast and the Jamestown settlements. This book is much more readable than DeVoto's book. The middle is slow at times, since it's the repeated cycle of Spanish establishment, running out of food, terrorizing Indians for corn, and then back to Spain, but it's a good place to start if you're wondering what exactly happened after Columbus up to the Jamestown period.

if Q. sometimes seems unexciting, that is because exploration was mostly unexciting. with great care and diligence he seeks to set out what was learned and disseminated and when. From this one learns how difficult it was to establish European colonies in N. America. Q. well illustrates the variety of tribal cultures and the varied relations with them conducted by Europeans. This is a fine survey of the labor to construct a map of North America and put North America on the map.
