    When Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire in 1453 and long- established trade routes to the East became treacherous, European merchants looked west in search of new lands, new routes, new markets and the possibility of glory and fortune. Offering a new version of the race to discover America, Boyle reveals the commercial motivation of the great voyages and focuses on the rivalry and friendship between three men in particular - Christopher Columbus, John Cabot and Amerigo Vespucci.
