Christopher Columbus, mariner by Samuel Eliot Morison ( Book )
47 editions published between 1942 and 1997 in 8 languages and held by 2,319 libraries worldwide
The voyages of Christopher Columbus comprise one of the great adventure stories of all time. His first journey across thousands of miles of unknown ocean, amid the mutinous grievances and tensions of his crew, was not only one of the most significant achievements of recorded human history, but was also a demonstration of Columbus's supremacy as mariner and navigator. For while he had faults and defects which brought turmoil to his personal life, "there was no flaw, no dark side to the most outstanding of all his qualities--his seamanship." This is the story of Columbus the seaman, told by a skilled historian, writer, and navigator who has actually followed Columbus's original courses under sail. Admiral Morison underwent in sailing vessels the same hazards of wind and sea.
