A Voyage Long and Strange
by Tony Horowitz
What happened in North America between Columbus's sail in 1492 and the Pilgrims' arrival in 1620? On a visit to Plymouth Rock, Tony Horwitz realizes he doesn't have a clue, nor do most Americans. So he sets off across the continent to rediscover the wild era when Europeans first roamed the New World in quest of gold, glory, converts, and eternal youth. It is a rich mix of scholarship and modern-day adventure that brings the forgotten first chapter of America's history vividly to life.
