Book Description

IMPORTANT NOTE: This book is intended for English-Speaking readers who are learning Spanish.

The Spanish version of the book is in BOLD face followed immediately by the original English in italics. This formatting allows the reader's eye to quickly read only the Spanish if they want or to quickly check their comprehension without having to fumble back and forth to find one language or the other.

All school children in the western hemisphere know that in “1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Other than that ditty, few people know the “Admiral of the Ocean Sea” made three subsequent voyages. Of these, his final trip a decade later, to what became known as the “New World,” was probably the most interesting. It is the stuff of fiction: fierce storms, contrary currents and hurricanes. Pitched battles with hostile natives and former companions. Ship wrecks, marooning, mutiny, trickery, petty jealousies, deceit, greed, dashed dreams, despair, extraordinary heroism and rescue. But every bit of it is true and documented. The only license I have taken with the story has been the creation of the fictional narrator of the events.
