kindle å The Four Voyages ß Laurence Bergreen

Columbus: The Four Voyages Þ HistoryUS Well written book about a fascinating man and his voyages and the Spanish colonization of the New World I was astonished by both the bravery and the cruelty of the Columbus and his crews Years of not knowing whether they would ever make it back to Spain; repeated near disasters at sea; repeated rebellions among the ships' crews; friendship and war with the natives; an astonishing succession of incredible experiences Bergreen presents Columbus as a man of great strengths and great weaknesses He was a gifted navigator and a terrible leader of men His single minded pursuit of China and gold blinded him to the implications of the land that he did findHis excessive demands on the local population for gold that did not exist and tribute that he thought they owed the Spanish king caused some according to Bergreen to commit suicide by destroying their own crops Neither they nor the Spanish would have anything to eat The Spanish never considered trying to be self supporting They relied on supplies from Spain and from the Indians Columbus tried to start a slave trade but too many of the Indians died on the voyage back to SpainThe book moves along well with the various conflicts and dangers described thoroughly but the story always moving forwardHighly recommended both as an interesting story and for its insight into the relations between the Spanish explorers and the population they met and nearly exterminated kindle å The Four Voyages ß Laurence Bergreen
