Inhaltsangabe: Describes some of the difficulties that Columbus faced on his first voyage to the New World and what he found at the journey's end.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-- This picture book adds little to the large body of work available on the subject. Spencer covers the struggle to get Ferdinand and Isabella to finance the endeavor and describes the voyage itself. She uses repetition freely for emphasis and in this way conveys the persistence of Columbus in requesting funds and the monotony of life aboard ship for the crew. While the introduction states that "Disease and warfare killed millions of American Indians," no mention is made of the fact that Columbus himself was guilty of kidnapping Tainos and of contributing to the death of others. The book lacks other factual information, dates, and maps. Everything here is readily available elsewhere and, while the artwork is colorful, neither it nor the text are in any way distinguished. Vicki Liestman's Columbus Day (Carolrhoda, 1991) is a better choice. --Jean H. Zimmerman, Willett School, South River, NJ
