Prince Henry the Navigator of Portugal feels certain there lies not only the legendary island named Atlantis in the great sea, but other lands to the west, far beyond the limits of the horizon. He has assembled the men wisest in the lore of their nations and their people, and one by one he calls them to tell him the stories of their land, of their seas, of their journeys.
If old-storytelling collections intrigue you, Padraic Colum's tales of mythical and historical seafaring voyages will weave their spell over you. With additional notes from Smidgen Press mentioning Native American and Indigenous perspectives Colum would not have had access to for his writings about Columbus and Jamestown, we hope readers will appreciate having this Newbery Honor classic back in print.
