Does simply finding a new land constitute true discovery? Who actually discovered the New World? Why was finding the Northwest Passage so important? These and many other questions are explored as Glyndwr Williams discusses the great explorers, their motivations, and the realities of their voyages. This is an authoritative, clear, and concise overview of centuries of discovery. Lecture topics follow logically, and leave one wanting to learn more--which is great since more is available at the publisher's course links. J.D.P.
