The late Samuel Eliot Morison, former US Navy admiral, was also one of America’s premier historians. Combining a 1st-hand knowledge of the sea & transatlantic travel with a readable narrative style, he produced what has become the definitive account of the great age of European exploration. In his richly illustrated saga, he offers a comprehensive account of all the known voyages by Europeans to the New World from 500 to the 17th century.
