“The Epic Journey of Cabeza de Vaca: A land So Strange” written by Andres Resendez takes place in the sixteenth century with Spanish conquistadors searching for treasures in northern Mexico, and the state of Florida that only a handful have traveled into, leaving this unknown territory to be speculated about.

Imagine an explorer going back to his colony and no one was there, no sign of the colonists. This is what explorer John White went through with his colony of Roanoke. Roanoke is still one of the most unknown disappearances of people in the world. The Roanoke colony disappeared because the Croatan tribe had the colonist assimilated with the tribe’s culture.

In the year 1519, Spain set sail to be the first ones to circumnavigate the globe. Under the leadership of Ferdinand de Magellan, they were able to accomplish this monumental task by the year 1522, even though Magellan died before they journey was complete. In the article titled “Ferdinand Magellan 's Voyage Round the World, 1519-1522”, we are able to recall the accounts transcribed from the paper-book of a Genoese pilot who wrote detailed accounts about the events that transpired throughout the journey. Around 55 years after Spain’s voyage, the English set out to circumnavigate the globe under the leadership of Sir Francis Drake in the year of 1577. An article titled “Sir Francis Drake 's Famous Voyage Round The World, 1580” was written by Francis Pretty, who was one of Drake 's Gentlemen at arms. This article is a description of Sir Francis Drake’s voyage, detailing the specific events that transpired throughout the voyage. Throughout this paper I will be comparing and contrasting these two voyages.

Although separated by over 430 years, the most notable adventures of Christopher Columbus and Charles Lindbergh are both two pieces in the history of exploration. Like many other ventures, they share some similar characteristics: the intent of the trip, the obstacles that came as a result, the important factors that made each quest successful or unsuccessful, and the final result of their travels. The expeditions share many similarities, yet have various differences. In the grand scheme of things, however, they both interconnect the most with their vitality to the progress in the world that we live in.
Stephen Hawking declared, “Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge.” Since the beginning of time, humans have been searching constantly for answers and knowledge about the world around them. Scientists have brought it upon themselves to be the discoverers of the human race.
