Reviews

"Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Horwitz has presented what could be described as a guide for those who are historically ignorant of the "lost century" between the first voyage of Columbus and the establishment of Jamestown in 1607. In this informative, whimsical, and thoroughly enjoyable account, Horwitz describes the exploits of various explorers and conquistadores and enriches the stories with his own experiences when visiting some of the lands they "discovered." Horwitz writes in a breezy, engaging style, so this combination of popular history and travelogue will be ideal for general readers." --Booklist (starred review)"Irreverent, effervescent... accessible to all ages, hands-on and immensely readable, this book invites readers to search out America 's story for themselves." --Kirkus Reviews"This readable and vastly entertaining history travelogue is highly recommended." --Library Journal (starred review)"Funny and lively...popular history of the most accessible sort. The stories [Horwitz] tells are full of vivid characters and wild detail." --The New York Times Book Review"A romp through the sixteenth century.... Horwitz has an ear for a good yarn and an instinct for the trail leading to an entertaining anecdote." --The Washington Post"Honest, wonderfully written, and heroically researched.... Horwitz unearths whole chapters of American history that have been ignored." --Boston Globe"Like travel writer Bill Bryson, Horwitz has a penchant for meeting colorful characters and getting himself into bizarre situations." --The Christian Science Monitor"A sweeping history.... A fascinating story, filled with adventure, Vikings, French voyageurs and those Pilgrims." --The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"Horwitz is a very funny writer." --Bloomberg News"A winning and eye-opening read.... Horwitz's charm, smarts, impeccable research and curiosity make this a voyage worth taking." --The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)"By conveying our past so heartily, handsomely and winsomely, Tony Horwitz does America proud." --The Providence Journal
