Synopsis

Kerr's Voyage 2: The Americas provides a lively account of the major voyages to the Americas--North, South and Central--as well as to the West Indies. From the first voyage of Columbus and his discovery of the New World, the discovery of the continent of Paria, of the islands of San Salvador and Jamaica, and the establishment of the first European colony in the New World at Isabella, to the conquest of Cuba, the strange expedition of Ponce de Leon in search of the Fountain of Youth, the conquest of Mexico, the discovery of Peru, Chile, Newfoundland and Florida, and the attempt upon the Royal Treasure in Tierra Firma, Nicaragua, these great voyages of discovery and conquest are presented in a rich and detailed narrative. With a new Introduction by bestselling author Simon Winchester.

Robert Kerr (1755-1813) was the grandson of the 1st Marquis of Lothian. An independent scholar and a Fellow of the Royal Society, his literary works include translations of Lavoisier, Berthollet and Linnaeus, as well as a translation of Baron Georges Cuvier's Essay on the Theory of the Earth. His crowning achievement, however, remains his General History and Collection of Voyages and Travels.
