Across Continents free pdf Christopher Columbus and Vasco da Gama sailed through uncharted waters and risked death in the name of exploration. Marco Polo traveled by land to places so exotic and few believed that these places could actually exist. These three very different men discovered new lands and set new trails for others to follow. There was nothing that could stop them! The story opens in a tavern in Portugal in the 1530s. Three sailors narrate the adventures of the world's most famous explorers - Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama and Marco Polo -- and recount their most famous voyages to the new world and his return to Spain, to India. This story traces the lives of three exceptional men with a thirst for adventure so strong that nothing could make them turn back.

About Lewis Helfand

Lewis Helfand was born on 27th April 1978 in Philadelphia and grew up in nearby Narberth, Pennsylvania. Although interested in cartoons and animation from a young age, by the time he was twelve Lewis's focus had turned to writing. After completing high school, he remained in the Philadelphia area with the intention of pursuing a degree in English. Four years later, with a political science degree and a passion for comic books, Lewis began working for local publishers by proofreading books and newspaper articles. By the age of twenty four, Lewis had been editing phonebooks for a year and a half and felt no closer to his lifelong goal of writing comic books. One day he decided to quit his job. Lewis then spent the next two months working day and night to write and draw his first comic book, Wasted Minute, the story of a world without crime where superheroes are forced to work regular jobs. To cover the cost of self-publishing, he began working odd jobs in offices and restaurants and started exhibiting at local comic-book conventions. With the first issue well received, he was soon collaborating with other artists and released four more issues over the next few years. At the same time, Lewis continues to work outside the field of comic books as a freelance writer and reporter for a number of national print and online publications. He has covered everything from sports and travel to politics and culture for magazines such as Renaissance, American Health and Fitness, and Computer Bits.
