Marc Wilson of TownNews.com has published his second book, "Kidnapped by Columbus."

The book, published by Floricanto Press, is an historical fiction account of six Native Americans taken to Spain by Christopher Columbus after his “discovery” of the New World.

The narrator is a 14-year-old Native American who secretly learns Spanish and encounters some of the key characters in history, including Columbus, Queen Isabella, King Ferdinand, Grand Inquisitor Tomas Torquemada, Catherine of Aragon and the ill-fated Prince Juan. He's also present when Pope Borgia's papal bulls, which give almost one-third of the world to Spain, are unveiled.

Wilson's earlier book, "Hero Street U.S.A.," published by the University of Oklahoma Press, won a first place in the 2010 International Latino Book Awards.

Both books are available on Amazon and through local book stores.

Wilson is a long-time columnist for News and Tech magazine. He's a founder of TownNews.com.
