So, when he returned to Spain in 1493, he brought samples of gold, exotic plants, strange birds, and six Taíno "Indians" to the court of Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. Kidnapped by Columbus is the fictional - largely accurate - historical account of the "Indians"' voyage to the Old World told through the eyes of a 14-year-old Native American.
