This is a story from the Great Explorers collection.
Here are the stories of nine great adventures and the lives of the men who took part in them. They pushed back the frontiers of man's knowledge of the world by their vision, courage, and sheer doggedness. They were very different people, from bold adventurers facing the unknown with enjoyment to careful, more scientific individuals. Their journeys are placed within their historical context, but also contain the words of the men themselves.
David Angus’ informative and engaging snapshot of the legendary historical figure sheds light on the circumstances surrounding Columbus’ discovery of the New World as well the four courageous voyages he undertook in this audiobook adroitly narrated by the talented Sam Dastor, whose casually professorial tone and energetic delivery makes for a breezy listen that will appeal to people of all ages in search of an accessible primer on this integral juncture in colonial history and Western civilization.
