Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Christopher Columbus landed on the island of San Salvador in 1492, what he discovered were the Taino Indians. Told from a young Taino boys point of view, this is a story of how the boy tried to warn his people against welcoming the strangers, who seemed more interested in golden ornaments than friendship. Years later the boy, now an old man, looks back at the destruction of his people and their culture by the colonizers.

Synopsis:

When Columbus landed on the island of San Salvador in 1492, what he really discovered was a people with a culture and civilization of their own. Master storyteller Jane Yolen tells of Columbus's initial landing as seen through the eyes of a native Taino boy. Full-color illustrations.
