At once moving and lyrical, this is a tale in which we join Christoper Columbus on a fantastical voyage through the western seas and western imagination. Robert Finley imagines, sings, charts and paints the story of Columbus's problematic 1742 expedition to the Carribean, creating a world that is vivid and compelling.
