In this volume Morison begins with a discussion of Columbus and his earliest voyages. The book ends with a chapter on the discovery and exploration of Cape Horn during the period 1598-1666. As usual the author's work is a superior example of both scholarship and writing. Many of Morison's sources for research were not written in English since most of the historians who have studied the voyages of discovery south of the Caribbean have been either Spaniards, Portuguese, Brazilians, Uruguayans, Chileans or Paraguayans. The author's wife, companion and valued assistant, Priscilla Barton Morison, died in 1973 just before the book's first publication.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
