In recent decades, the prevailing opinion of Columbus's political and financial ambition was responsible for almost everything that went wrong in the New World. Taking a revisionist look at this controversial figure, Carol Delaney challenges this belief, positing that Columbus was driven to find a western route to the Orient not only by the promise of vast wealth for the Spanish crown but by a personal mission to fund a new crusade. In addition to bringing the challenges of ocean navigation to life in her text, Delaney places the explorer in the context of his times, detailing remarkable events that struck Europe prior to his birth, and revealing a man of religious conviction and astonishing determination.
