Description of the audiobook The Chronicles of America Volume 03 - Elizabethan Sea-Dogs:
Citizens, Colonists, Pioneers! These three words trace America's history back to the earliest forms of "the New World was called America." But who paved the way for the pioneers of the Old World, and what kept them safe in the New?
The book's title, Elizabeth Sea Dog, provides the only answer. During the reign of Elizabeth, the last Tudor ruler of England, Queen Elizabeth gained command of the seas under the distinguished leadership of Sir Francis Drake, the first Admiral of modern times.
Drake and his companions are known as Sea Dogs. They won the British right of passage into the Spanish New World. Anglo-American history begins with the sea adventures and naval battles of that century when English sailors marked and secured the long sea routes for various other types of men who found or sought fortune in America--Excerpt from Preface.
