Passages: A Treasure Trove of North American Exploration

Passages: A Treasure Trove of North American Exploration

Based on a rare book exhibit at the Canadian National Library, this site presents an account of the the human side of the explorers (including those of indigenous origins) who revealed North America to Europeans. Using passages from the writings of these explorers, the site uses "a somewhat impressionistic approach by selecting passages that described the explorers and their guides, the hardships encountered on their voyages of exploration, and the sense of wonder inspired by their discoveries."
