Opening Up North America, 1497–1800, Revised Edition integrates in a chronological narrative the voyages taken from Florida to Newfoundland, covering the first recorded contact of John Cabot in 1497 through Alexander Mackenzie's journey across the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific in 1793. Through these stories, the geography of northeastern North America is pieced together and the impact European exploration had on Native American society continues to be felt today.

 Coverage includes:

  • The importance of cod fishing in the North Atlantic
  • Beaver hats and the role played by the fur trade in exploration of the continent's interior
  • Spanish, French, and English claims to territory in the southeast in the 16th century
  • Exploration by Jacques Cartier, Samuel de Champlain, Henry Hudson, Étienne Brûlé, René-Robert Cavalier, Sieur de La Salle, and others.
