Men who do great things are men we all like to read about. This is the story
of Christopher Columbus, the man who discovered America. He lived four

Christopher Columbus was born in this beautiful city of Genoa in the year
1446, at number 27 Ponticello Street. He was a bright little fellow with a
fresh-looking face, a clear eye and golden hair. His father's name was

Sea, which is a very large body of water, you know, and to England, to
France, to Norway, and even as far away as the cold northern island of
Iceland. This was thought to be a great journey.

another, and the sailors
