These two continents, North and South America, form the part of the world called America. Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492. He was born in Italy but lived in Spain for a long time. Christopher was a seaman and made many sea voyages. In 1492 the King and the Queen of Spain gave him money to go to India. He decided to sail west as he was sure that our planet was round. After sailing 4000 miles, he reached some land .Columbus thought that it must be India but it was not. It was America Central America in fact. People began to speak about the land as the New World. The second great voyage of Columbus began in September in 1493.

The history of Thanksgiving Day The last Thursday in November is a

holiday in America. People called this holiday Thanksgiving Day. In 1620 the first colonists came to America and began a new life there. It was very hard life. The colonists started to farm the land. In New England, the place where they lived, there were many wild birds. They were like chickens but much bigger. They were turkeys. In the autumn of 1621 the colonists had their first harvest. It was rather good. The colonists decided to have a special dinner. The colonists had a thanksgiving dinner for all the people. Wild turkeys were on the table of this meal, and since then the turkey has become a symbol of Thanksgiving Day.

The Wild West In the 18th century some Americans went to the west to

look for new lands, and the story of Wild West began. In the 19th century people went west to look for gold. They built new settlements and new towns on these lands. Some people were lucky but some were not as they could not find any gold. Then they left the towns, so they became empty. Now these ghost towns are very popular with tourists. Life in the Wild West was full of danger. The Native Americans in the west did not like white people who took their land. Sometimes they attacked them. There were bears and other wild animals and people had to have guns. Today many Americans still keep a gun in their houses and all American police officers have guns.

Another tradition from the Wild West is cowboy clothes

In the days of the Wild West clothes were very important as they helped people to live leading a difficult and dangerous life. Cowboys spent much time outdoors. They usually wore hats, boots and jeans. In the middle of the 19th century in the city of San Francisco there lived a tailor called Levi Strauss. He made special clothes strong trousers called jeans. Very soon cowboys started to wear jeans. Now people wear jeans in America and over the world.
