KIRKUS REVIEW

A document, with helpful editorial commentary by the editor. After a lengthy introduction which condenses 200 years of sailing and exploration before Columbus, Mr. Sanderlin allows Columbus' journal to tell the story of the discovery of the New World. Mr. Sanderlin's knack, revealed in other books in this vein such as his last--First Around the World: A Journal of Magellan's Voyage (1964, p. 968 J316)--is to allow the eloquence of the source material to speak for itself to the younger reader attempting research. This is accomplished through excerpts followed by concise editorial explanations and expansion.
