    Douglas Hunter tells the story of how Christopher Columbus was embroiled in a high stakes race with John Cabot to find a shortcut to the East, and how they ultimately discovered a New World neither was looking for. Drawing on fresh research and new translations of critical documents, Hunter reveals the surprisingly intertwined lives of Columbus and his overshadowed rival, and offers a new perspective on the first years of the European discovery of the Americas.
