Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A lavishly illustrated (with some 240 color and 96 b&w illustrations, photos, charts, and maps) complement to the PBS documentary of the same name, which, however, stands by itself as a thoughtful contribution to the literature of the Columbus quincentenary--drawing upon the knowledge of international experts in fields as diverse as navigation, religion, anthropology, the history of colonialism and trade, agriculture, and epidemiology, to explore the complexities of the Columbus legend.
