Great Explorers Series

This book follows the daring voyage of Ferdinand Magellan, a man driven by the age-old dream of finding a way to Asia by traveling westward. Using pictures from the 16th century to the present day, this volume tells how Magellan: made preparations for the voyage; sailed around Tierra del Fuego, the tip of South America; faced disaster as he crossed the Pacific; made the voyage across the Atlantic and sighted land; and died before his journey was completed. As Magellan made this historic voyage around the world, the European exploration of South America continued. This book details: the journey of Hernando Cortes; how the mighty Aztec and Inca Empires were destroyed; the exploits of other explorers; and the impact Europe and South America had on each other. This special price is available only while supplies last.
