FOUR VOYAGES OF CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS, THE

Synopsis

No gamble in history has been more momentous than the landfall of Columbus's ship the Santa Maria in the Americas in 1492 - an event that paved the way for the conquest of a 'New World'. The accounts collected here provide a vivid narrative of his voyages throughout the Caribbean and finally to the mainland of Central America, although he still believed he had reached Asia. Edited and translated by J M Cohen.
