About the Author
Praise For The World Made New: Why the Age of Exploration Happened & How It Changed the World…
This splendid, exciting, beautifully illustrated account of the Age of Exploration relates events so dramatic that they would have been dismissed as implausible fiction if they hadn't actually happened. Don't think of this as Ôjust' a book for kids: children's parents will find it equally gripping and informative. ÑJared Diamond, Professor of Geography at UCLA, and author of the best-selling Pulitzer-Prize-winner Guns, Germs, and Steel
