Robert Goodwin chronicles the adventures of the African slave Esteban Dorantes (1500-1539), the first pioneer from the Old World to explore the entirety of the American south and the first African-born man to die in North America about whom anything is known. Goodwin's groundbreaking research in Spanish archives has led to a radical new interpretation of American history - one in which an African slave emerges as the nation's first great explorer and adventurer. Slightly off-mint.
