    Some historic events deserve meticulous analysis and research, such as Columbus' 1492 voyage. Accurately detailing his actual route was not easy; much of the remaining information was non-conclusive when studied in isolation. A derivative second-hand travel log transcription has obvious mistranslations. Islands and coastal areas in the Bahamas have similar features that also complicated the analysis. So, why bother with the dissection of Columbus' voyage? Within the puzzling clues and details are the riches. Arne Molander, in this comprehensive investigation, thoroughly stitches together the epic journey and sets the record straight. His fresh review of all the evidence reveals that Columbus was indeed a skilled navigator, using the stars to precisely navigate. This book is for historians and history buffs who are open to new ideas - ones who want creative new insights instead of rehash. The chapter on San Salvador is especially compelling, in which the author provides overwhelming... More > evidence that Columbus first landed in the northern Bahamas. Molander also provides many over nuggets, including Columbus witnessing the 50-foot tides in Canada's Bay of Fundy in 1477, and strong proof that Ponce de Leon did not discover Florida. This important book is also reasonably priced, and full of revealing maps and other figures.< Less
