User Summary: You explore the islands of the New World with Columbus, the Southwest with Coronado, or the Mississippi River with La Salle.
Dtar's Thoughts: In this book, you have the chance to follow one of three explorers of the New World, on five story paths. For two of those explorers you have the choice of exploring as a member of the expedition, or to encounter them as a Native American who lives in the area being explored. This gives a more balanced perspective on things than the "Life as a" set of books in this series. The added space devoted to the "other side" of the story makes for less choices and adventure overall for both sides, but seems a good trade-off in the interest of exposing the reader to different perspectives.
