"Pedro's Journal" by Pam Conrad

Here is the book description from the back of the book:

Pedro de Salcedo could not have known what adventures lay ahead! His incredible voyage as ship's boy aboard Christopher Columbus' Santa Maria would bring both dnager and excitement. Pedro captured his experience between the pages of a journal. If he did not return alive perhaps someone, someday would find it and learn of his incredible journey to the New World.

Really, the statement at the end about his journey to the New World is inaccurate as they did not know that they were sailing to a New World. They believed to be sailing to Asia and even thought that was where they were when they got there. Oh well, it is all accurate in the book .....great book for learning more intimately about the journey!!!
