Journal of Columbus. Book of the first navigation and discovery of the pig.
The Book of the first navigation and discovery of the Indies, as called Fray Bartolome de Las Casas the Journal of Columbus, is one of the two first historical documents about the discovery of America. Columbus began to write it on the day of their departure from the port of Palos on August 3, 1492, and ended on March 15, 1493, with arrival at Portuguese port Saltes. It reflects the exciting journey the Genoese navigator and his companions across the Atlantic Ocean by a completely unknown route to get to the commercial ports of the East. We know that the original manuscript sent Columbus Catholic Kings was lost in the sixteenth century, and today we know from this copy, not literal, by the Padre Las Casas.
