A GREAT CHRONOLOGICAL SOURCE

da NETNAVIGATOR (Utenti WorldCat. Pubblicazioni 2011-03-16) Eccellente Link permanente

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.
