Columbus gets a letter from Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand that he has permission to take the shortcut to Asia. He proudly sails the ocean, which is retold in his own perspective. When he arrives on American Land, he believes it to be Asian. Here he meets interesting people (the Taino) whom he trades with. One of the Taino men continues telling the story in his own perspective. Finally Columbus left the Bahamas and traveled around other smaller islands. One of his boats is wrecked off the coast of Hispaniola and he is forced to leave some of his men there. Columbus travels back to Spain and has an amazing story to tell.
