KIRKUS REVIEW

A curtain raiser on the landing of the Pilgrims in this story of exploration and voyages and the men who made them and whose accomplishments made possible and successful the Puritan colonization. Known to historians, but not familiar to many, here are the accounts of earlier discoverers who made Plymouth Rook the pinnacle rather than the foundation of New England settlements:-Cortereal, Verrazano, Gomez, Allfonsce, Thavet, Ingram, Hawkins, Goswold, Pring, Waymouth, Argall, Biard, together with Hudson, Cartier, John Smith and others better known. Good evaluation of men and exploits.
