With excellent illustrations and simple maps, this book begins with the First Peoples travel to "America" over the land bridge and ends with Columbus, Cabot, Vespucci, de Balboa, and Magellan. The book places Columbus in context with what happened before and happened after Columbus' voyages.

This is a great book to start talking about how the Americas were founded. It begins with the Ice Age and how the land bridge was formed. It talks about the discoveries of the lands by different explorers. It talks about how some diseases had killed most of the natives and how the land was first settled. I would use this book in a beginning geography lesson. It would be a great Segway into teaching the explorers. ( )
