Synopsis: 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. He is convinced that the most direct route to the Far East is by sailing due west around the globe. But King John and all he knows only laugh at him.
Reaction: Not particularly in-depth, but it's a good introduction to teach the children the kind of persistence that Columbus had to exhibit to fulfill his dream.
Personal Rating: 6/10
