Christopher Columbus The Story of the Intrepid Italian Explorer

Written by Martin Howard

Part of the Lives in Action Series

Christopher Columbus The Story of the Intrepid Italian Explorer Synopsis

Christopher Columbus' astonishing life is a story of inspiration, bravery, incredible achievement and terrible hardship. As the explorer who took three small boats across the Atlantic and found an undiscovered continent, he was a hero - but his greed for gold and power brought tragedy on the people living there, and eventually caused his own downfall. His amazing story captures the excitement and urgency of the Golden Age of Discovery. Lives in Action is a series of narrative biographies that recount the lives of some of the key figures in history. Page-turning, thrilling plots that read like fiction will keep the most reluctant reader hooked.
