Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
To the wild and unknown shores of a new world, hesitantly at first, then with growing expectations, came Europe's adventurers and dispossessed, saints and sinners, farmers and traders, poor hoping to get rich, and rich hoping to get richer. National Geographic writer Tee Loftin Snell journeyed first to Europe to seek out origins of America's early settlers. Then she traveled the coasts of North America, searching into the places where the French, Spanish, English, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedes, Germans, and Russians gained footholds on the land. In The Wild Shores: America's Beginnings, we experience both the triumph and the tragedy of the early settlements. Jacket normal wear. National Geographic Society
