What a fantastic book! A compelling read that (thanks to prolific documentation from participants at the time of Magellan’s epic travels) is well researched and rich with details but never bogs down. The story moves along at a clip, is engagingly written. Highly recommended.

A well researched look at the trip of Magellan to find the Spice Islands through a sea route past the "Americas" that resulted in the first recorder circumnavigation of the world. Very informative yet reads like a novel with a well paced narrative. Worth reading if you are interested.

The intensive research, & ability to tie it all together, as one of the great Age of Discovery reads, (500 yrs ago), was one of the best books I've had the pleasure to read. An amazing adventure from start to finish. Hats off to Laurence Bergreen.

I started reading the book on a whim because I had nothing else to read. It turned into a book I could not put down.
