The Lost Diary of Christopher Columbus’s Lookout Summary


The eleventh Lost Diary detailing Columbus' first voyage across the Atlantic and his historic landing in the `New World'. As told by Luc Landahoya who tries to work out where he's going. The diary tells the story within a 12-month span from Spring 1492 when Columbus got the official go-ahead from Ferdinand and Isabella, to the Spring of 1493 when he returned in triumph following his `discovery' of the New World. Life aboard ship, New World discoveries that still survive today tobacco, hammocks, barbecues, canoes, maize etc. The power of the `press' - printed accounts of Colubus' triumphs spread fast and coming at the end of the 15th Century, the 1492 voyage was part of a significant turning point in European and world history. There are plenty of good-natured laughs in this story - Columbus was convinced he was sailing to China and Japan. He was also convinced he was travelling to a land of untold riches but took along cheap glass beads of worthless trinkets and glass beads as gifts.
