One of the most incredible women in history, Isabella "La Catholica" deserves honor of unifying Spain into the one country as we know it today. Against inconceivable odds, she cast out the last Moslem king from Spain, overcame the machinations of her pretended friends, and the commissioned the first European explorations of the New World. A longer and moving historical biography of one the most noble women rulers that ever lived; the incredible problems she faced in even assuming her throne; battling to save Spain against incredible odds and powerful enemies both internal and external, who hated her unflinching Catholicism and desire for the conversion and salvation of souls. This is of course the same tremendous queen who, after saving her country, commissioned Christopher Columbus on his voyages.
