The Story of Columbus does not end when he discovered the American continents in 1492. In his lifetime he made four voyages to the New World and instead of enjoying honor and rewards, he suffered much due to jealous colleagues and scheming courtiers. The promise of gold brought out the worst in everyone, as this book, which retraces the years both before and after Columbus's great discovery, makes clear. The life of the great explorer provides a fascinating character study in a thoughtful manner appropriate for intermediate readers.

While the stories are well written and engaging so far, they are very much white washed. Not surprising for an older book, but I prefer a more moderate view of history. Columbus is painted only as the brave and heroic figure who discovers America for example.
