The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

The Voyagers: Being Legends and Romances of Atlantic Discovery is a children's book by Padraic Colum. It comprises a mixture of legendary and historical stories about Atlantic exploration, from the story of Atlantis to the naming of America. The book, illustrated by Wilfred Jones, was first published in 1925 and was a Newbery Honor recipient in 1926.

The voyagers included are Maelduin, Saint Brendan, the children of Eric the Red, Christopher Columbus, Ponce de Leon, colonists of Virginia, and Amerigo Vespucci. Their stories are told within a framing sequence of Henry the Navigator's interest in exploration.
