Ferdinand Magellan will forever be known for leading the first successful expedition to sail around the world. Learn about the early life and voyages of this early sixteenth-century Portuguese explorer, his discovery of what would later be named the "Strait of Magellan" and his fleet's death-defying journey across the Pacific Ocean. Author David Aretha describes how Magellan ingeniously avoided mutiny, struggled against impossible odds to keep his crew alive, and was ultimately killed before his last remaining ship returned to Spain with its few surviving crew members.
David Aretha has authored more than twenty books for young people, including Yellowstone National Park: Adventure, Explore, Discover for Enslow Publishers, Inc.
