Summary
Admiral of the Ocean Sea is Samuel Eliot Morison's biography of the greatest sailor of them all, Christopher Columbus. It is written with the insight, energy, and authority that only someone who had himself sailed in Columbus's path to the New World could muster. Morison undertook this expedition in a 147-foot schooner and a 47-foot ketch, the dimensions of these craft roughly matching those of Columbus's Santa Maria and Niña. The result is this biography, detailing the voyages that, for better or worse, changed the world
