This section presents books on the history of the New World - from the settlement of the continent to the appearance of the Spaniards, as well as presents historical materials on the history of all "three Americas": North, Central and South.
According to the modern scientific point of view, the settlement of America began about 30,000 years ago through the land crossing between Alaska and Eastern Siberia, which existed during the Ice Age, took several waves and ended about 10,000 years ago when the ocean level blocked the isthmus between the continents. Around the same time, the first groups of people moving along the Pacific coast and the Rockies reached the southern regions of South America, and another group of people migrated across the Great Plains from west to east toward the Atlantic Ocean.
It is believed that the descendants of the first settlers from Asia lived in isolation from other continents until the tenth century, when the colonization of the coast of modern Canada began. The cultures and civilizations they created were fatally influenced by Europeans, who began to inhabit America in the 15th century after Christopher Columbus visited the West Indies in 1492. In 1507, the open lands got their current name from the German cartographer Martin Waldzemüller, who named them after the Italian navigator Amerigo Vespucci, who was the first European to suggest that it was a new continent. In 1538, the Dutchman Gerard Mercator used the toponym "America" to denote the entire western hemisphere.
In the following years, America was colonized by several European states, which led to the emergence of new cultures, civilizations and countries.
