Publisher's Summary

Imagine your shock at waking up one morning to a fleet of enormous, otherworldly craft looming over you. And when bizarre aliens begin to emerge - speaking strange gibberish - your heart races even faster. Similar fears may have gripped New World inhabitants when diverse civilizations - separated by a vast ocean - first met. American natives once knew nothing of towering ships, galloping horses, thundering guns, or smallpox. From 1492 onward, however, waves of adventurers would give them a cruel introduction. And yet, ultimately, New World dwellers - together with their Old World counterparts - would become transformed by these global connections. Historian and author Marc Aronson - a Library Journal Best Book honoree and a Robert F. Sibert Award winner for excellence in nonfiction - teams up with John W. Glenn to give kids and their parents a fresh perspective on New World exploration.

Critic Reviews

"Add this to Aronson’s growing body of fine historical works that are changing how young readers think about history." (Kirkus Reviews)
"This splendid, exciting...account of the Age of Exploration relates events so dramatic that they would have been dismissed as implausible fiction if they hadn’t actually happened. Don’t think of this as 'just' a book for kids: children’s parents will find it equally gripping and informative." (Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning UCLA professor)
