      And I looked and beheld a man among the gentiles, who was separated from the seed of my brethren by the many water; and I beheld the Spirit of God, that it came down and wrought upon the man; and he went forth upon the many waters, even unto the seed of my brethren, who were in the promised land. I recommend this book to anyone above third grade or higher. The New World was the name given to the area that Columbus had discovered. If he was a white supremacist, why on earth did he protected his Taino allies from the Caribs and Spaniard mutineers? Though little is known about his childhood, it is assumed that he was well-educated because he was able to speak several languages as an adult and had considerable knowledge of classical literature. African coffee and Asian sugar cane became cash crops for Latin America, while American foods like corn, tomatoes and potatoes were introduced into European diets.

      The Islamic powers had effectively closed the land routes to the East and made the sea route south from the Red Sea extremely hard to access. Many times he did not distinguish what was war and what was abuse or he would mix both events. The Turkish Empire conquered Constantinople and established rule. It took a steadfast individual to deal with poor nutrition, illness, rough weather and many days away from land. Columbus must have made an impression, however, as King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella gave Columbus an annual salary and lodging. He later married Filipa Moniz Perestrello, and in his son Diego was born.
