  • Barry Turner
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)

The first Europeans to make their presence felt were Spaniards who based themselves in Florida before venturing north and west. Santa Fe in New Mexico was founded in 1610. But by the mid-sixteenth century there was competition from the French centred on Quebec who colonized along the St Lawrence River.
