    The period between Columbus' discovery of America in 1492 and the arrival of the Pilgrims in 1620 is the forgotten first chapter of American history. Tony Horwitz interweaves his own journey through the country's oldest heritage sites with the stories of the European explorers and settlers in whose footsteps he travels - Columbus himself, the conquistadors, the Roanoke colonists who mysteriously disappeared and John Smith of Jamestown, who claimed to have been rescued by Pocahontas.
