Publisher's Summary

Columbus did not discover America. That honour goes to Norseman Bjarni Herjolfsson, whose storm-driven Viking longship took him briefly to the mainland of North America. Yet it was five centuries before Europeans arrived once more on the American coast. Columbus happened to be the first.

Curiously, the phrase "The Indies", was not mentioned in the famous Capitulation, an agreement signed by the king and queen of Spain before Columbus sailed on his epoch-making voyage. It merely stated that he was permitted to search for islands and a mainland in the said ocean. It said nothing of Columbus's obsessive idea that a ship could reach the east by sailing westwards. That was his own personal dream and because of it, instead of discovering a sea route to the Indies, he opened up a whole new world.
