From the Back Cover:

In New Lands, New Men, the third volume in his award-winning Exploration Trilogy, one of America's leading historians tells the dramatic story of three centuries of exploration that witnessed Europeans exploring the Pacific and Northwest, Americans setting out across their own immense continent, and, finally, Americans exploring new worlds: the oceans, Japan, the polar regions. William H. Goetzmann writes in absorbing detail about the remarkable adventures of the explorers and the explosive rise of American science. America was truly exploration's nation - a culture of endless possibilities, continually looking forward in the direction of the new. New Lands, New Men illuminates America's rise to cultural and scientific prominence - and transforms our understanding of America's role in world history.
