It's past midight on October 12, 1492, and it's now or never for Christopher Columbus and his lifetime dream of discovery. After 37 days of sailing west across the unknown seas, he must find land or else return to Spain at dawn, as he has promised his tired, angry crew.
But he's not ready to quit. He's not afraid to stand up for his dreams, just as he's not afraid of sea monsters or falling off the edge of the world.
From his first sea voyage as a boy to his first step ashore the Americas, this is the thrilling story of how one man's vision and courage brought continents together and changed history forever.
