"This history is intended to meet the want for brief, compact, and handy manuals of the beginnings of our country. In this volume, I have followed up to its legitimate ending the work done by the three great rival powers of modern times in civilizing our continent. I have tried to make it the worthy, if modest, exponent of a great theme. The story grows to absorbing interest, as the great achievement of the age."Contents: Three Rival CivilizationsThe SpaniardsAn Historic EraDe Soto's Discovery of the MississippiDeath and Burial of De SotoThe Indians of FloridaHow New Mexico Came to Be Explored"the Marvellous Country"Folk Lore of the PueblosLast Days of Charles V.
