KIRKUS REVIEW

One has a sense of having read this before: wasn't there another might-be-true story of columbus' first voyage, as experienced by the boy who went along as cabin boy? This is well done, and uses authentic source material, from the period when Columbus finally reached Queen Isabella to his triumphant return from the initial voyage, still secure in his confidence that he had discovered a route to the Indies. Fedro is a convincing enough though somewhat stock figure.
