When Columbus landed on the islands in the Caribbean Sea, he thought he was off the coast of China. A few years later, Amerigo Vespucci sailed west, hoping to find a new route to the East. Instead, he discovered new lands that nobody at home knew about. What did he see? Who did he tell? And why is America named after him? Hundreds of years ago, the great Italian city of Florence was very dark at night. No streetlamps or billboards cast up their glow. No floodlights shone down on baseball fields. When the sky grew dusky, the streets filled with shadows and the bustling city noises disappeared. The river Arno reflected the stars overhead as it flowed past the lamplit houses. In a mansion close to the river, a boy named Amerigo leaned out his window, tipping his head back to look at the stars. The Story of Amerigo Vespucci correlates to Chapter 31 of The Story of the World, Volume 2.
