In the Americas With David Yetman

Christopher Columbus, His Time And His Plans

Season 10, Episode 9 of 10

Columbus spent nearly a decade in Spain lobbying for his expedition. More than anywhere else, he remained in Huelva, a port on Spain's southwestern coast. With him on his voyages he brought the heritage of his surroundings and their many assumptions. His quest shaped his mission and the sailors he chose were of critical importance to the success or failure of his mission. Understanding them and their times helps clarify the influence- and the destruction they would heap on the Americas.
