Columbus: Great Explorer of the World has been published.

The time is 2:00 AM in the morning, the date is October 12, 1492. In the distance a line of white cliffs shimmering in the moonlight was seen by the sailors. After five weeks at sea the shout goes out: "Tierra! Tierra!" which in Spanish means "Land!, Land!" In this new biography of Columbus, author Stephen Feinstein writes:

...Columbus did cross the uncharted Atlantic Ocean. He was not the only European to believe that the world was round. But he seems to have been the first to stake his life on it. And is voyages would change the world.

This biography tells the story of Christopher Columbus and how his many voyages to the New World would change the world forever.
