Columbus and the Conquest of the Impossible

Felipe Fernández-Armesto

Columbus This classic biography of the discoverer of America reveals him to have been a novice navigator whose first trans-Atlantic voyage was motivated as much by ambition for social advancement as any firm conviction of the existence of a western route to the Indies. First published in 1974, this edition contains an updated introduction by the author to include the latest scholarship.
