Over the Edge of the World: Magellan’s Terrifying Circumnavigation of the Globe

by Bergreen, Laurence

CAD $22.95

A tale of discovery that brings to life Ferdinand Magellan’s daring voyage in the 16th century–a time when sailors feared falling off the edge of the earth. His three-year odyssey was filled with sex, violence, and adventure. Interweaving a number of first-hand accounts, some previously unavailable in English, Bergreen portrays Magellan as a man who was not above torture and murder to maintain control of his ships and his sailors.
