" Currently reading his "diary" for research/work. Waiting for detailed passages about missing his mother and fetish for indigenous women. " said.

" Brian Omdahl recommended this title as a resource for history or social studies classrooms and their teachers. " said.

" Si, también leí esto para una clase de literatura latinoamericana de la conquista, y aunque fue aburrido muchas veces (al fin y al cabo estuvieron mucho tiempo en alta mar) resulta interesante ver lo que le pasaba por la cabeza a Colón mientras estaba perdido en el mar. " said.

" Después de leer estos textos sumamente alucinantes e inquietantes, me pregunto si todavía se celebraría el día de Cristóbal Colón con desfiles y fiestas en algunas regiones de los Estados Unidos si todos tuviéramos que leer los diarios de sus viajes. " said.

" This is exactly what it sounds like. A day-by-day description of Columbus' journey to the New World in 1492. The repetitous nature of the entries (although understandable, given that they're out to sea where there isn't a big choice of exciting events) finally wore me down. " said.

" I read this in a class that discussed narratives of culture and nativism. Columbus's journey to the Americas is often told from a Euro-centric perspective, less often told from a native perspective, and rarely told from his own. These narratives are an interesting insight into his voyages into the "new world." " said.

" It's quite interesting to read Columbus' log. The Admiral of the Ocean Sea does not come across as the demon that some would portray him. This is a journal that has one foot in the middle ages and the other in modern times. Most interesting the the account of the first contacts with the native Americans. " said.

" Despite the name of the author and the title this book is niether written by Columbus nor is it about his four journeys. I found this very disappointing as the online description was vague. I was looking for the journal Columbus kept during his voyages.This book is a wealth of info. The editor uses original documents as source material. These are from the perspectives of people who knew Columbus and traveled with him. " said.
