Who Discovered America? by Valerie Wyatt

Book Description

Who discovered America? There's no simple answer. The question points to an ongoing mystery of continent-sized proportions. Christopher Columbus stumbled upon America in 1492 while looking for a western route to the Indies, but he wasn't the first. The Vikings settled briefly on the coast of Newfoundland hundreds of years before him, and left ruins to prove it. Explorers from Portugal, China, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and elsewhere can also stake claims. In addition to investigating all serious claims, award-winning author Valerie Wyatt delves into the continents' most ancient mysteries, some stretching back 40,000 years. Who Discovered America? reveals that historical sleuthing takes many years of hard work, puzzle solving and comparing legends and artifacts.Young readers will find the question of who discovered America much less simple, and much more fascinating, than they ever dreamed.
