Christopher Columbus and the Taino people / Kate Messner and José Barreiro ; illustrated by Falynn Koch.

Messner, Kate, (author.). Barreiro, José, (author.). Koch, Falynn, 1985- (illustrator.).

"In 1492, Christopher Columbus sailed across the ocean and discovered America. Right? Wrong! Columbus never actually set foot in what is now the United States. His voyages took him to islands in the Caribbean and along the coast of South America. The truth is, when Columbus first arrived, Indigenous peoples, including the Taino, had been living there for thousands of years, raising their families, running their societies, and trading with their neighbors. He didn't "discover" the lands at all! And his name? Not even really Christopher Columbus!" -- Provided by publisher.
