Description:The challenge then and now: how can the West reach the East and not be thwarted by Arab control of the oil and trade routes. An intimately detailed, inimitably researched, and shockingly timely addition to the historical fiction market, 1492: A Novel of Christopher Columbus, the Spanish Inquisition, and a World at the Turning Point, by Newton Frohlich, separates fact from the myths surrounding the voyage of Columbus. It provides a new and illuminating window into a crucial moment in world history when human tragedy and human triumph were inextricably intertwined and is surprising relevant to history today.
Frohlich spend eight years in Israel, Spain and Italy, researching and learning about Columbus. What he discovered was extraordinary – and significantly more complex and far-reaching than the popular narrative of a courageous Italian sailor who knelt before the Queen of Spain and made a daring journey to the West.
1492: A Novel of Christopher Columbus, the Spanish Inquisition & a World at the Turning Point is available in paperback and e-book formats wherever books.
