There once was a boy who loved the salty sea. He would be a seaman when he grew up. A ship would be his shuttle, the waves his warp, the wide and bounding sea his loom. In Genoa in Italy there stands a grey, deserted house. From here the little boy set out into the world to weave a lasting pattern on the trackless waste of the sea, and to find, in the end, a new world beyond the turbulent waters. His name was CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS and this is his story.
