Pedro's Journal: A Voyage with Christopher Columbus, August 3, 1492-February 14, 1493
Pedro can read and write better than any boy in the small Spanish town of Palos. That's why Christopher Columbus signs him on as part of his crew of the Santa Maria. The young Pedro records his adventures in a journal, where he also keeps sketches of what he sees during the treacherous journey across the Atlantic. Award-winning author Pam Conrad and illustrator Peter Koeppen create a thrilling and believable re-creation of one boy's account of this epic voyage.
