In the past, there was no other way to map the world except for exploration. The Europeans have been at the forefront in the Age of Discovery as they journeyed to new horizons. The Spanish and Portuguese monarchs sent numerous ships to uncharted waters to expand territories, gain wealth and resources, and spread their beliefs. The explorers found themselves having a hard time traveling from Europe to Asia as the only known route at the time was through the vast African continent. Thus, they sought to find other ways to make the journey more efficient. Around this time, people already knew that the Earth was round, so the colonizers traveled westward to find another sea route. Despite their best efforts, none were successful in finding Asia. Instead, they saw a massive continent with millions of natives already inhabiting the lands. Soon after, the colonization of the Americas begins.Upon setting foot in America, Christopher Columbus saw different species of animals and plants, various unique landforms, and native Americans who were living in their own societies. Because of his loyalty and allegiance to the Spanish Kingdom, Columbus added the already inhabited lands to the Empire's collection of territories. Since then, the Americas have been a target of European exploration and exploitation.This series features specific significant times in US history that have shaped the nation in one way or another.

The 'salmon-fishers' of North America, the nomadic tribes of the great central plains, and the highly cultured civilizations of Mesoamerica and the Andes are integral components of an extraordinary time in history. Beginning with the emergence of the first civilizations around 1200 BC, this book covers one of the most dynamic periods of America's history. As a huntergatherer way of life gave rise to agriculture, the emerging civilizations began producing cultural artefacts such as pottery, metalwork and textiles, which encouraged trade and, ultimately, prosperity. Religion served to unite peoples from diverse regions, but also led to warfare when seizing captives for sacrifice. This book investigates both the peaceful and violent aspects of ancient American civilizations and uses the most recent information to bring to life these fascinating cultures, some of which flourished until just a few centuries ago. In ancient North and South America extraordinary civilizations rose, flourished and fell.
