In New Lands, New Men, the third volume in his award-winning Exploration Trilogy, one of America's leading historians tells the dramatic story of three centuries of exploration that witnessed Europeans exploring the Pacific and Northwest, Americans setting out across their own immense continent, and, finally, Americans exploring new worlds: the oceans, Japan, the polar regions. Willam H. Goetzmann writes in absorbing detail about the remarkable adventures of the explorers and the explosive rise of American science. America was truly exploration's nation -- a culture of endless possibilities, continually looking forward in the direction of the new. New Lands, New Men illuminates America's rise to cultural and scientific prominence and transforms our understanding of America's role in world history. - Jacket

When the eagle screamed; the romantic horizon in American diplomacy, 1800-1860 by William H Goetzmann( Book )

14 editions published between 1966 and 2000 in English and held by 1,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Eagle Screamed argues that America's expansionism between 1800 and 1860 positioned it against some of the world's most powerful and aggressive nations. As the United States moved onto the world scene in this age of Manifest Destiny, it clashed with Britain, France, Russia, Spain, and Mexico. The struggle for Texas and Oregon, the war with Mexico, the postwar adventures and skirmishes in the Caribbean, the penetration of South American and the Far East, the competition for Antarctica and the South Sea Islands, and the drawing of the great Pacific border at Hawaii - all, William Goetzmann argues, arose from romantic ideals of grandeur and destiny."--Jacket
