A wind from the north, the life of Henry the Navigator - electronic bk

Contributor
Summary
Before Columbus, before Vespucci, before Drake, there was Henry the Navigator. Pirate hunter, intrepid explorer, ship designer, and much more, Henry was one of the great innovators in the age of discovery. Yet the scope of his contribution to our world is often overshadowed by other figures. But Bradford brings the gripping tale of this pioneer to light, putting into perspective the work of Henry the Navigator. In his lifetime, Henry helped break the sea barriers that separate the continents. Rising above scorn and ridicule, he initiated an era of audacious exploration to lands most didn't believe existed. His courage and forward thinking would forever change the course of history
