"If 1492 began a period of exploration, 1607 inaugurated another momentous chapter in world history - the colonization of America north of Mexico. This process of settlement was more than just a westward movement. English Jamestown was founded in 1607, followed by Quebec, the center of French influence, the next year, and Santa Fe, the main source of Hispanic culture, another year later. Jamestown, Quebec, Santa Fe: Three North American Beginnings traces the little-known story of the creation of three centers from which English, French, and Spanish influence radiated across the continent."--Jacket.
A companion guide to the touring exhibition offers coverage of how each community interacted with Native Americans; traces their respective political, social, economic, and religious systems; and profiles rare examples of seventeenth-century artifacts.
