About this title


A collection of letters and journal entries from Columbus and members of his exploration parties describe the new land, encounters with Indians and cannibals, and more

From School Library Journal:

YA-- The rather ironic title sets the tone for this collection of letters and eyewitness accounts by Columbus and his contemporaries during three voyages to the New World. Included in this fascinating account is his well-known letter to Queen Isabella describing the beauty, wealth, and natives of the islands. Excerpts from journals and logs of others who made the journey, including Columbus's sons and brothers, tell of Carib Indians' reactions to the intruders; adventures of lost exploring parties; meetings with cannibals; and the ruthless justice meted out by the Crown against the Indians and its own citizens when crossed in its intent to accrue more wealth and power. The later writings reveal the increase in Indian slavery, the usurping of the food supplies on the islands, the wasting of resources, and the conflicts among Columbus, the Crown, and other nobles as they jockeyed for positions in the new Spanish Empire. The clearly written text is enhanced by beautiful illustrations by artists of that era, woodcuts, old maps, and photographs of the islands as they must have looked then. A valuable perspective on history. --Deanna Kuhn, Thomas Jefferson Sci-Tech, Fairfax County, VA
