In 1519 Captain General Ferdinand Magellan and his fleet set sale on an epic journey that would irrevocably alter the path of history. Now, for the first time award-winning biographer and journalist Laurence Bergreen masterfully interweaves previously unavailable first-person accounts that bring to vivid life Magellan's circumnavigation of the globe. In rich, absorbing prose Bergreen captivatingly details the mutinies, discoveries, deaths, and political betrayals throughout a voyage that proves as spellbinding and shocking today as it did in the sixteenth century.
