Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788438964, CD-ROM)

Published in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America, this work vividly describes the German role in the discovery, exploration, and early settlement of America. Legend says that Tyrker accompanied Leif Ericson to the New World and, thus, was the first German in North America. The first Germans to land in what would become the US, arrived at Port Royal, South Carolina, in 1562. Group immigrations began in the 1600s. This work also described the conditions in Germany prior to 1700 which contributed to the German immigrations to America and included several facsimile title-pages of books published in Europe in the 17th century which encouraged immigration. This new edition has been updated by Don Heinrich tolzmann (University of Cincinnati) to include a new introduction about the life and work of Julius Friedrich Studies (a rapidly expanding topic since the 1960s), as well as a new conclusion with reference to further sources dealing with the German heritage. Richly illustrated with maps, coats-of-arms, contemporary sketches, renderings of buildings, and other illustrations.
