In this intimate, haunting literary biography, the life and times of Christopher Columbus are brought to the light.
Credited throughout history as the discoverer of North America, but now fallen into disfavor, Christopher Columbus is brought back to life in Three Days in May to give his side of the story.
With raw honesty and authentic prose, Ilaria Luzzana Caraci, the leading expert on Columbus, brings readers behind-the-scenes for the highs and lows of Columbus' life and times, and deep into the truths of his dramatic relationships—including his complicated dealings with Spanish royalty. Through warfare, hardships, and exploration—Caraci exposes what really did and didn't happen.
Powerful and unforgettable, Three Days in May is an important account of how America struggled to become the nation it is today.
