PRODUCT SUMMARY


Follow along as our two young hosts are given a chance to meet and question one of history's most famous explorers -- Christopher Columbus. Listen as Columbus describes why he believed that a shortcut to Asia could be found by sailing West and how he was able to keep his crew from mutinying after his first voyage lasted much longer than he had expected. Learn about the goals, successes and failures of all four of Columbus's voyages to the New World, and find out about his technique of using the prevailing winds to cross the Atlantic. Learn more about the Taino, the native people of the Caribbean, and their encounters with Columbus and his crew. Discover how Columbus's questionable tactics led to the downfall of this native group. Students will enjoy learning the truth of this often-romanticized explorer and hearing Columbus discuss and defend his actions in this exciting video dramatization. Part of the multivolume Explorers of the World DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and is available online.
