Jean Fritz brings history to life once again in 10 true tales of 15th-century European explorers--from Bartholomew Diaz and Christ...opher Columbus to Juan Ponce de Leon and Vasco Nunez de Balboa--who changed the map and left behind stories of adventure too good to miss. Fritz approaches the salient facts with playful irreverence; accordingly, the frequently traveled material can seem refreshingly new. Publishers Weekly, starred review Fritz turns in a fast-paced narrative enriched and enlivened by fascinating stories and details of the sort that rarely appear in standard textbooks.
