These two volumes constitute the opening section of Fiske's massive history of colonial North America. Here he describes the Native American peoples prior to the European voyages of discovery, then relates the voyages of discovery themselves, to which he adds material on the Spanish conquests.

The first chapter provides an overview of the Native American societies as they existed prior to the arrival of Columbus. The remainder of the first volume is devoted to the many voyages, some real and some mythical, recorded prior to the voyages of Columbus, and then to the work of Columbus himself.

The second volume begins with accounts of the many voyages of discovery to North America of the sixteenth century, especially those of the English, but also those of other European countries. The remainder of the volume is devoted to a history of the Spanish conquest of Mexico and then of Peru, with the beginnings of the story of colonial Spanish America.
