    Not the most detailed maps, but they do have maps of the routes taken by the major explorers. You many not find all of the others though. Click the link on top for the first letter of their last name. If you don't find it, try a different letter. Cabeza de Vaca is under C, for example.

    This site is good for biographical info and timelines of the explorations of each explorer, but it didn't have maps for any that I checked.
