This book falls in the realm of historical fiction. It is based upon the writings of two experts on the authentic logs of the Santa Maria; Robert H. Fuson who wrote "The Log of Christopher Columbus" and Samuel Elliot Morison who wrote "Admiral of the Ocean Sea: A Life of Christopher Columbus."
It is written from the viewpoint of Pedro, a ship's boy, hired because he could read and write.
A very worthwhile book.
