The Last Voyage Of Columbus by Martin Dugard

The subtitle for The Last Voyage Of Columbus is Being the Epic Tale of the Great Captain's Fourth Expedition, Including Accounts of Swordfight, Mutiny, Shipwreck, Gold, War, Hurricane and Discovery. In 1502, Columbus made his fourth and final voyage to the New World, desperate to salvage his reputation and provide for his heirs by finding a passage to spice-rich Asia. Accompanied by his younger son, it was probably Columbus' most difficult voyage, dealing with hostile natives, a hurricane, a mutiny, shipwreck, Spanish court intrigue, and world politics. While a master sea captain, Columbus was a terrible administrator once he was on land. In 1503, he limped back to Spain a defeated old man. Martin Dugard's retelling of this last chance for success for Columbus has received positive reviews with the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "Dugard's book breathes life into that futile, unquenchable, 500-year-old dream. There's adventure for you."
