We all know Christopher Columbus discovered America, but did you know he was actually searching for the West Indies? This and other lesser-known facts are tastefully read by Martyn Read in this abridged biography. Read narrates this seafaring tale with British pomp and circumstance. His crisp words sound as arrogant as the subject was purported to be. Columbus believed he was God’s gift to the field of navigation and didn’t let anyone forget it. This is a nice glimpse of the man behind the mast. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
