Produktbeschreibung

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Arthur Barlowe was one of two British captains (the other was Phillip Amadas) who, under the direction of Sir Walter Raleigh, left England in 1584 to find land in North America to claim for Queen Elizabeth I of England. His account survives in a letter written to Raleigh as a report on their journey. It is one of the earliest detailed English commercial reports written from direct observation about any place in North America and has been called "one of the clearest contemporary pictures of the contact of Europeans with North American Indians." Barlowe and Amadas departed England with two ships on April 27th, sailing down to the Canary Islands and then on to the West Indies, where they stopped briefly for food and water before sailing north along the eastern coast of Florida. After eleven days they came to shallow water and smelled "so sweet, and so strong a smell, as if we had been in the midst of some delicate garden," indicating that land was nearby. Two days later (July 4th), they saw the coast and continued to sail for 120 miles until they could find an entrance or river going in from the sea.
