Product Highlights
Threading The Islands Map 1986
Item#: X NGC 111986b

The "Threading the Islands" map explores two possible routes of Columbus's journey and possible landing sites. The Morisson track asserts that the explorer landed on San Salvador, while the Judge track favors Samana Cay. This map was printed in November 1986 to accompany three articles on Columbus and the "Where Did Columbus Discover America?" map. A fascinating new look at a centuries-old question.

The 1986 "Threading the Islands" map features:
• An introduction explaining the two theories
• Both the Morisson and Judge tracks, with notes on each point
• Nautical miles between points and speed noted
• An inset map of Samana Cay detailing points that make it the more compelling landing point, including notes from Columbus's logs
• Anchorage points, Columbus monuments, and selected Lucayan Indian sites
• Ocean bathymetry and currents

Coverage Area: San Salvador Island, Samana Cay, Bahamas
