Columbus’ discovery of the Americas was not an accident as we would be led to believe. Rather it was a well thought out voyage by one individual who, at a time in history when the mere idea of independent thinking without the church’s permission was heresy, planned it meticulously and carried it out with verve and daring. How he obtained the monies, crewed his ships, made the voyage, and returned to Spain has been a lot of historical speculation up till now. This is the true story of the trials and tribulations of Christopher Columbus, Queen Isabella, and the crews of the Pinta, Nina, and Santa Maria.
