    One thought on “Westward with Columbus: Set Sail on the Voyage That Changed the World”

    1. Part nonfiction, part historical-fiction. Dyson describes how he and his cohorts got this crazy-ass idea to sail the ocean just like Columbus did, with no modern conveniences. I personally think that's insane but to each his own. The book covers the author's own experience sailing the ocean juxtaposed next to the fictional account of Pedro, a ship's boy that sailed with Columbus. I believe the fictional account was meant to be filled with facts, but I would've preferred just hearing it straight, [...]

    2. The book alternates between a historical fictional story of a young boy and his voyage with Columbus and a modern group of men who recreated the journey in 1990. It has many maps, art, and photographs. The book clearly shares about some of the negative aspects of the journeys such as slavery.

    3. This was about Columbus' sail to the New World. This book gives information about everything from the ships' names to maps that Columbus possibly used. I personally thought this book was too long and tedious for me, let alone a child. I would probably use a smaller book in my class if I was talking about Columbus.
