Christopher Columbus and the First Voyages to the New World (Medallion Edition)
in Excellent Condition!

As the 500th anniversary of Columbus's first voyage draws near, this biography joins the growing number of recently published books about him. With a textbook-style format and size and relatively short length, it will provide excellent research material.

There are quotes from diaries, excellent reproductions of paintings and engravings, full-page portraits introducing the chapters, color prints of several early maps and a coat of arms, and a map detailing the routes of Columbus's four voyages.

Dodge's style, however, which is marked by long sentences with advanced vocabulary and complex structure, may prove difficult to many young readers. Meltzer's Columbus and the World Around Him (Watts, 1990), aimed at a similar age level, has a less intimidating narrative style. Both books discuss Columbus's unwavering belief that he was right, his unwillingness to admit mistakes, and the mistreatment of the Indians by him and his men. As Dodge explains, Columbus was both vilified for his enslavement and torture of the natives and elevated to near sainthood for his role in their conversion to Christianity. His book is notable for its attention to important historical detail and the many valuable illustrations, but Meltzer's book is outstanding for its extension beyond the reporting of events to the interpretation of history in a style that will not only interest uninitiated readers but will also inform and even entertain them.
