Synopsis: Most of us learned that the New World was named after the Italian navigator Amerigo Vespucci, who sailed here in 1499. As we investigate the last 25 years of the 15th cent., we realize that a new continent was visited by explorers & merchants alike A series of recent discoveries reveal a new & intriguing theory about how America got its name. The worlds of Waldseemuller, Vespucci, Cabot, Columbus, & a Welshman named Richard Amerike are unraveled & enumerated to create a spellbinding book. Tantalizing new evidence is presented here in a gripping account that is both educational & entertaining. Introduces new events & characters that blend into the age of discovery to create a compelling story of adventure & learning. Illustrations.
