Description: Chronicling the British pursuit of the legendary El Dorado, Masters of All They Surveyed tells the fascinating story of geography, cartography, and scientific exploration in Britain's unique South American colony, Guyana. How did Europeans turn areas they called terra incognita into bounded colonial territories? How did Sir Robert Schomburgk, predisposed to seasickness (and unable to swim), make his way upriver into thick jungle and forbidding mountain ranges, survive for the better part of a decade, and emerge with a map? And what did that map mean?
