Awesome! A 60-year-old book that is still very readable. This presents Columbus in a very realistic manner. It logically disputes theories that have been used to disparage Columbus's birth claims, language, and his skills, yet honestly portrays his often harsh treatment of American natives. The author spent 2 years traveling Columbus's routes in similar boats and brings a lot of sailing jargon to the book, but also a lot of experience because of this.
