This is an amazing book! Talk about a true glimpse into history. It is a reprint from John Boyd's 1903 translation. I truly enjoyed this book. To read the very words written by a man we have heard about since we were young, the one that discovered America! I put to rest a lot of falsehoods I had read about Columbus through out the years. It was very exciting to read about his day to day voyage, trials and all that he saw and heard. If you love history you'll want this book. I also had my kids read it when they were in school.
