Given all of the revisionist accounts of the life of Christopher Columbus that have recently surfaced, this classic biography should be mandatory listening for all academicians. Justin Winsor, an historian, poet, literary critic, and fiction writer, retraces every important aspect of Columbus's fascinating life, from his family origins to his beliefs and convictions. Columbus emerges as a living, breathing human being with passions and ideas - a man possessing intellect and imagination. Winsor's opus represents an honest search for the truth.
