Selected Bibliography

North American Exploration, Volume I
The literature of the earliest period of North American exploration encompassed by volume 1 is extensive. The following listing, therefore, is necessarily partial and arbitrary but should be taken to be a reasonably complete thematic coverage of the subject. Most of the books below are secondary sources, available in medium-sized public libraries and most college and university libraries. The latter locations, in particular, will have a good selection of primary source materials as well, and although the interpretations of voyagers and discoveries, of travels and travelers, offered by scholars are worthwhile reading--and hence dominate this selected bibliography--even more valuable are the words of the explorers and their contemporaries. Those for whom the story of North American exploration is more than idle curiosity should seek out those primary sources. It is in the words of the participants themselves that the reader captures the feel of salt spray in the face and, every so often, catches a whiff of sandalwood, borne on the breeze blowing from the Spice Islands.
