Publisher's Summary

Did Christopher Columbus discover America or a route to the Far East? He was an Italian explorer, navigator, and colonist who had a singular goal toward which he was driven. His courage was astounding, as he and his three small ships set sail across the Atlantic Ocean. Columbus and his men took precarious and dangerous journeys toward a blue horizon. All they had to depend upon were nautical charts, an astrolabe, and a quadrant. The maps he used were developed by more ancient astronomers such as Ptolemy and Eratosthenes – men who had never sailed the great sea.

Inside, you’ll read about:

  • Birth of the dream
  • Stumbling blocks
  • The first voyage westward
  • The first voyage home
  • The second voyage
  • The third voyage and the troubles
  • The final voyage and death
  • And much more!

Fascinating

This book provides a concise overview of the great man's life. It's fine if you don't want to go into it in too much detail.
