Summary
An irresistible blend of history, myth, and misadventure, A Voyage Long and Strange captures the wonder and drama of first contact. Vikings, conquistadors, French voyageurs--these and many others roamed an unknown continent in quest of grapes, gold, converts, even a cure for syphilis. Though most failed, their remarkable exploits left an enduring mark on the land and people encountered by late-arriving English settlers.--From publisher description
Summary
A chronicle of the period in American history between Columbus's discovery of the new world and Jamestown's founding evaluates the voyages and first-contact experiences of numerous European adventurers
