However, Wallace was forced to escape, but ultimately Marion was captured and sent to death. Upon hearing news of her death, Wallace and his men planned to retaliate by killing the English sheriff.
If Duvall was still in town, Jake figured the outlaw’s indulgence for gambling, liquor, and women might provide a lead to his location. He’d been to five saloons already, and so far, no one recalled seeing him.

From the time the ancestors left the plains and savannahs of Africa to venture forth into the unknown, the human species have steadily spread all over the world and even beyond it towards the stars.

While in Panama, he became very rich and his social position in society grew (Nardo, 1947). Also, during his stay in Panama, he heard a lot about rich lands that were further south to the Panamanian settles, and soon aspired to travel South (Nardo, 1947).

One is not seeking her goals by seeking out money. In the quest to acquire one’s happiness, one must accept the initiative to attain it herself. There is no repressing or anticipating money in line to accomplish one’s dreams. James Allen preached, “If your real desire is to do good, there is no need to wait for money before you do it.” When he recites this quote, he reaches out to readers who are anticipating if they want a life or not.
Have you ever read “ And Then Their Were None”? It is a very good mystery book. Ten people were all invited to Indian Island to go on a vacation. When the book started they were all on their own going to the boat docks.
Why did the Europeans explore so prolifically between the 14-16 centuries? The ‘Age of Exploration’ is the period between the 14th-16th century and is known for the European exploration into different parts of the world.

Many factors, mostly technological advances, made it easier for countries to explore beyond the European Continent at this time.
