(From the publisher):
In this novel in verse, a beautiful and naive Columbia Columbus wanders through the world in search of friendship upon the death of her famous father. Despite fantastic adventures, she finds mostly cruelty and indifference, until she makes friends with an ever-growing number of animals, some of whom serve as bodyguards during her dramatic return to Montreal, in the year 2492, to celebrate the millenium of Christopher Columbus's discovery of America.
