Product Overview

This history of early European colonial efforts in North America (specifically, the portion north of Mexico and the Caribbean) examines why three colonies?St. Augustine, Jamestown and Quebec?succeeded where many before them had failed. Chapters cover Columbus' exploration and the Treaty of Tordesillas; other Spanish explorers and settlements in the New World; French attempts at settlement prior to Quebec; early English settlements, including Roanoke; failed settlements dating to the Norse enclaves on Greenland; and in-depth studies of the three colonies that survived.
