From Columbus's voyage in 1492 to the publication of the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano, a former slave, in 1789, Jill Lepore, winner of the distinguished Bancroft Prize for history, brings to life in exciting, first-person detail some of the earliest events in American history in Encounters in the New World. Providing fascinating commentary along the way, Lepore seamlessly links together primary sources that illustrate the powerful clash of cultures in the Americas. Through emotional eyewitness accounts -- memoirs, petitions, diaries, captivity narratives, private correspondence -- formal documents, official reports, and journalistic reportage, dramatic stories of the New World are revealed, including: * A Jesuit priest's chronicle of life among his Iroquois captors * Aztec records of forbidding omens he earliest events in American * John Smith's account of cannibalism among the British residents of Jamestown * Memoirs by members of Cortes's expedition * Reminiscences of an escaped slave A special 16-page color cartographic section, including maps from both Europe and North America, provides a fascinating look at how the maps' creators saw themselves and the world around them.Lepore, Jill is the author of 'Encounters in the New World A History in Documents', published 2002 under ISBN 9780195154917 and ISBN 0195154916.
