You Wouldn't Want to Sail with Christopher Columbus by Fiona MacDonald

You are Christopher Columbus, the explorer who accidentally discovered America. Follow Columbus' struggles to finance his journeys, his sometimes infamous behaviour and his final lonely days. You Wouldn't Want To Be is a constantly-growing library of exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.
