Synopsis: Describes the voyages of Columbus, the terrible impact of the Spaniards on the Indians, and the ultimate cultural influence of the Native Americans on their white conquerors

From School Library Journal: Grade 6 Up-- In a smoothly flowing, intelligent, and colorful style, Meltzer presents the scant known facts about Columbus' early life, highlights all four of his voyages to the New World, and ends with a portrait of a confused and sickly old man, still fantasizing about the fabulous treasures he never saw. Meltzer paints a bold and unbiased picture of Columbus as a boastful, confident dreamer who refused to believe that the land he discovered was anything other than the eastern edge of the Asian continent. His determination to win a monarch's support for his voyages and his stubborn drive to continue against terrible odds are attributed not only to his desire for wealth but also to his dubious interest in converting heathens. The torture and slaughter of innocent native Americans presents another, less heroic perspective. Meltzer exhibits informed knowledge of his subject; his well-researched use of primary sources, such as logs and other first-hand accounts is exemplary. The bibliography contains Meltzer's cogent comments about the way in which he used the sources and the relative value of each. The handsome volume is enhanced with numerous black-and-white maps and archival reproductions. Meltzer is to be commended for his faithful presentation of Columbus' life, a panoramic view of an era of momentous change, and his creative interpretation of the basic truths to be learned from Columbus' amazing experiences. --Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, TX
