Columbus - The Untold Story
May be the best and most authoritative book ever written on Columbus, winner of the 2017 Independent Press Award in World History. The Independent Press Award also named it the "2017 Distinguished Favorite" in Biography: Historical. It had already been named Best History Book of 2016 in the Huffington Post. There are so many extraordinary claims the author makes and yet he meticulously supports them throughout the book, even DNA tests. Every detail is a compelling fact that leaves you begging for the next one as the plot advances. Rosa travels some exciting side trails too that no Columbus researcher ever even noticed before, let alone dared to venture down, and smashes all kinds of paradigms in the book, which reads not only like a historical work, but as a spy thriller and adventure story as well.
