[SR: 272957], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780719566356], John Murray, John Murray, Book, [PU: John Murray], 2008-05-15, John Murray, The bestselling author of "Blue Latitudes" takes us on a thrilling and eye-opening voyage to pre-Mayflower AmericaOn a chance visit to Plymouth Rock, Tony Horwitz realizes he's mislaid more than a century of American history, from Columbus's sail in 1492 to Jamestown's founding in 16-oh-something. Did nothing happen in between? Determined to find out, he embarks on a journey of rediscovery, following in the footsteps of the many Europeans who preceded the Pilgrims to America.An irresistible blend of history, myth, and misadventure, "A Voyage Long and Strange" captures the wonder and drama of first contact. Vikings, conquistadors, French voyageurs--these 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. Displaying his trademark talent for humor, narrative, and historical insight, "A Voyage Long and Strange" allows us to rediscover the New World for ourselves., 271565, North America, 271566, Colonial, Independence 1501-1800, 271567, Civil War, American Indian Wars, Pioneers 1801-1900, 771766, Early 20th Century 1901-1913, 771768, Inter-war Period 1919-1938, 271570, Post-war Period, 1946-Present, 772168, War Of Independence, 771772, Korean War, 771770, Vietnam War, 771774, Gulf War, 10755401, American Civil War, 882506, Canada, 882508, Mexico, 772196, Native Americans, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772148, Social & Economic History, 772152, Health & Welfare, 275907, Imperialism, 771716, Industrialisation, 772156, Inventions, 772154, Protest & Reform, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772162, Cultural History, 772188, Local & Urban History, 772192, London, 271405, Multicultural History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 278066, Discovery & Exploration, 271389, Other Historical Subjects, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 279915, Travel Writing, 83, Travel & Holiday, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

JOHN MURRAY, 2008. Ex-library: No. Previous owners inscriptions: No. Book Condition: Good+. Jacket condition: Good. Small tear. Published: 2008. 1st Edition: Yes. Pages: 445. Description: Long before the Pilgrims, other Europeans pioneered North America, seeking land, converts and cities of gold. By exploring Americas lost, or often repressed, heritage, award-winning writer Tony Horwitz unmasks the country's founding myths. A Voyage Long and Strange opens with the Vikings in AD 1000, but focuses on the neglected period in early American history between Columbus's voyage of 1492 and the Pilgrims' arrival in 1620. Horwitz recaptures the adventures of non-English explorers and the drama of the first contact with native peoples during this period. He also sets out on his own journey of rediscovery, traveling in the explorer's wake to reveal the enduring influence that early Europeans had on America. Why, Horwitz asks, do we remember history the way we do? During his long and strange journey, from Indian sweat lodges to Columbus's crypt, he exposes the revealing gap between what we enshrine and what we forget about our past. A Voyage Long and Strange is a gripping historical adventure that illuminates not only America's early European history, but also the memory and myths that give the past power in the present day. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good., JOHN MURRAY, 2008
