A narrative history of exploration from Christopher Columbus to the 19th century, with journal excerpts, diaries and other writings of the explorers themselves. Goodman has marshaled his wide-ranging research and lifelong interest in exploration into a comprehensive, scholarly history. A reprint of the original 1972 edition, the tales have lost none of their luster.

Über den Autor (1992)

Edward J. Goodman is Emeritus Professor of History at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. He says of The Explorers of South America , "It is the story of the brave and the foolhardy, the saints and the scoundrels, the learned and the unlettered, the aristocrats and the lowborn--the men who for four and a half centuries have explored the 'green continent.'
