DISCOVERY OF THE AMERICAS 1492-1800
This volume from Facts On File's 10-book Discovery & Exploration series covers the dawning years of the "Columbian Exchange," when encounters between European and Native American societies began to change world history. The series is designed for middle school and older readers. A shorter revised edition for grades 5-8 was published by Chelsea House in 2009.
I also wrote "Muslim Travelers of the Middle Ages" for EXPLORATION IN THE WORLD OF THE MIDDLE AGES 500-1500 in the same series.
