    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Henry Holt, (2008) dj. Hardcover first edition - A "blend of history, myth, and misadventure, [this] captures the wonder and drama of first contact. Vikings, conquistadors, French voyageursthese 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. Tracing this legacy with his own epic trek - from Florida's Fountain of Youth to Plymouth's sacred Rock, from desert pueblos to subarctic sweat lodges - Tony Horwitz explores the revealing gap between what we enshrine and what we forget." Maps and illustrations. Notes on sources, bibliography, index. xii, 445 pp. Map endpapers. ISBN: 978-0805076035.

    Condition: Very near fine in a like dustjacket (one corner slightly bumped)
