A GREAT CHRONOLOGICAL SOURCE

por NETNAVIGATOR (Publicadas por usuario de WorldCat 2011-03-16) Excelente Permalink

Of all the  books associated with the life and voyages of Christopher Columbus, I have found this one to the best. The author actually sailed the routes which Columbus himself navigated. A very useful research tool concerning the geography and dates of Columbus' voyages.
