The history of early exploration in the United States almost always emphasizes voyages of discovery across th Atlantic Ocean, or daring settlements in Jamestown, Plymouth or St. Augustine. Names such as Cabot, Hudson, Verrazano. Captain John Smith or Sir Walter Raleigh are mainstays in every American's schooling. There is another story of an epic American voyage of discovery just as compelling that predates most other United States History. It is a story spun from the vast Pacific and launched by the robust dreams of an expanding Spanish empire. This s the story of the crew of the Spanish galleon San Salvador who became the first Europeans to view the spectacular panorama of California. Their expedition, led by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, unlocked and charted the unknown, introduced Europeans to California's Native populace for the first time, and put California on the map.
