To America and Around the World

The Logs Of Christopher Columbus And Ferdinand Magellan
TO AMERICA AND AROUND THE WORLD The Logs of Christopher Columbus and Ferdinand Magellan, by Adolph Caso This book contains the daily logs kept by Columbus—himself—and by Magellans’s scribe, Antonio Pigafetta, on their fateful voyages to the unknown Americas and subsequently around the world. These voyages have unequivocally changed and impacted on the western world like no other event except for the advent of Jesus Christ. The logs herewith are the first translations into English, and read like any modern adventure story such as Around the World in 80 Days. In one of his essays, Adolph Caso takes on the polemics surrounding the persona of Columbus—especially the issues of Leif Ericson—with the forged Vinland Map; the issue of Columbus being Jewish—with the claims that Columbus secretly worked with his Jewish brothers to find a Jewish state in the New World; and whether America should have a Columbus Day celebration. Giacomelli, on the other hand, tells the story of how America got its name.
