I am thrilled with my purchase of Christopher Columbus. This is the third DVD that I have purchased from NEST Entertainment. My son is a "visual" learner, so I have been supplementing these biography/history DVD's as part of his homeschool curriculum. They have been very beneficial in his retention of the facts surrounding these important historical figures. We plan to purchase & use all 20 DVD's & supplemental downloads this school year! Thank you NEST for showing our kids how important God was in the lives of these tremendous people.

I had to drop you this note to say how thrilled I am with you beautiful DVDs! I have ordered the whole history set and am showing them to my whole school (almost the whole school). I am a music teacher in the public school here in Alvin, Texas and am deeply committed to keeping God and His word alive in my big school. Yesterday we showed William Bradford and the first Thanksgiving to all 1st, 2nd, and 3rd and I sensed God hovering over that place as those little guys and gals sat wide-eyed and quiet as they heard (some of them for the first time) about what Thanksgiving was really about. Not only are your pictures beautiful but the true facts are presented in a stirring way and the music - superb! Columbus was wonderful too. All the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd got to see that as well. Now I can hardly wait to show the next one. Please pass my deepest gratitude along. You folks are wonderful!!!

Christopher Columbus (1451-May 20, 1506) was an Italian navigator and explorer credited with the discovery of the Americas.  A man of great leadership and courage, he often used “converting non-believers” as a reason for his explorations.  

Main Characters:
Christopher Columbus; his brother Bartholomew; King John; Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain; Talavera, Captain Martin Pinzon; Rodrigo

Overall Theme:
Christopher Columbus had to struggle for many years to achieve his dream of sailing west across the great ocean, expanding the horizons of his world.  His determination and faith were tested up to the very last minute before his great discovery.

Christopher Columbus believed that instead of sailing east on the path to find India that land could be reached in just weeks by sailing west! His voyages across the Atlantic Ocean began an effort at exploration and colonization of the Western Hemisphere.  After securing the support of Queen Isabella of Spain, he finally set sail for the new world. After three weeks of sailing and no sight of land, his crew threatened mutiny. But at the moment when all seemed lost, land was discovered!

The three ships used by Columbus in his 1492 voyage across the Atlantic Ocean were named the Pinta, Niña, and Santa Maria.

We first meet Christopher Columbus as an exuberant boy of Genoa, Italy who wants only one thing – an adventurous life at sea.  As he grows into a young man, he becomes an expert sailor.  When King John offers a handsome reward for the captain who can find the fastest route to the treasures of India, Columbus realizes he has found his calling.

Columbus is convinced that the most direct route to the Far East is by sailing due west around the globe - something that has never been done.  Despite the ridicule and jokes about his idea, Columbus’ determination keeps his dream alive.  Many years later, in search of support for his voyage of discovery, Columbus is in the court of Queen Isabella of Spain.  The Queen is intrigued by Columbus’ determination, but Spain is at war.  She can spare neither ships nor money for such an expedition. 

Queen Isabella asks her learned men, led by Talavera, to research Columbus’ plan.  Talavera rejects the idea of sailing west, but the Queen believes in Columbus.  When the war ends, she gives him a commission – three ships, a crew of ninety and money to make his journey.

On the voyage Columbus has two strong allies – the great captain Pinson, and a young boy Rodrigo.  The trip begins well, but as the days stretch into weeks, the men turn mutinous.  Rations run short, and the men are convinced they will perish.  Pinson is able to get the crew to agree to three more days of sailing before they give up and turn back towards Spain.

At the end of the three days, Christopher Columbus kneels in prayer, asking for help and guidance because he feels there is nothing more he can do.  Suddenly, Rodrigo shouts out from high up in the crows’ nest... Columbus has discovered a new world!

Back in Spain, Queen Isabella honors Columbus, naming him Admiral of the Ocean Seas.  She says his name will live forever and because of him the world will never be the same.

In our lives we face many obstacles.  The story of Christopher Columbus reminds us that to reach our goals we need great courage.  It is only with determination – sometimes lasting over years – that we can turn our dreams into realities.

The character trait of determination is grounded in faith and belief – values that begin with our relationship with God and extend into our daily life.  Columbus will always be remembered for changing the old world – and the new – forever.
