La estela de la adversidad

Authored by Richard S. Philbrick
Translated by Stephany Peñaloza, Deyreth García

The fourth, and final, voyage of Christopher Columbus to the "New World" was the stuff of fiction. The Admiral of the Ocean Sea battled hurricanes, constant storms and contrary currents. He fought pitched battles with the indigenous tribes in what is now Panama where he had to abandon two of his ships. Attempting to reach Santo Domingo in vessels barely afloat the adventurers were marooned on Jamaica. Two of the crew and a handful of Indians made a daring open-ocean journey in dugout canoes across the Windward Passage to bring word of their companion's fate. Half of the marooned crew mutinied eventually leading to a bloody confrontation between shipmates.

The author created a fictional narrator and a young orphan who made the journey in order to tell the story of this epic sea adventure.
