Mercedes of Castile – ebook
The historical adventure novel by Fenimore Cooper tells in detail about the first expedition of Christopher Columbus and the discovery of America. Cooper draws his character as a person far superior to those around him. Columbus was not an adventurer; he relied on experience and knowledge, knew how not to succumb to superstition. He was not afraid of the unknown, he was inspired and led forward by the dream of new discoveries. This is how he is depicted in the novel.
