It's something many Americans are certain is a solid fact: Columbus discovered America. While he is not with us to prove or disprove this fact, we now know that Columbus just wasn't the guy. First, Columbus never landed on the North American mainland. Second, how can someone "discover" a place that's already home to millions of people? In this lively and engaging book, readers will uncover the truth behind many myths about explorers in the Americas. Accessible text addresses important elementary social studies topics. Vivid images enliven the design, while captions, fact boxes, and a graphic organizer enrich the main content.
