How could I talk about the discovery of America without involving this man, Amerigo Vespucci? His history relies so much on two letters written to a friend. He mentions a book that would cover the accounts of his voyages, a book never written? Or just never published and remains in someone’s deep dark cellar? You can find the letter describing his first voyage at http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/1497vespucci-america.asp
About Terry Noorda
I record a podcast titled "Discovering America" that covers stories, histories about people and events that played apart in the discovering of America and leave the listener with a "I didn't know that feeling." Come along for the ride you won't be disappointed.
