Book Description

Aug. 2 2004 Who Was...?
When Portuguese sailor Ferdinand Magellan set sail from Spain in 1519, he believed he could get to the Spice Islands by sailing west through or around the New World. He was right, but what he didn't know was that the treacherous voyage would take him three years and cost him his life. Black-and-white line drawings illustrate Magellan's life and voyage, with sidebars and a time line that enhance readers' understanding of the period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Was Ferdinand Magellan? Sept. 24 2004
By R. Fishman - Published on Amazon.com
As an adult I thought the story was very intriging and exciting. This was

a Magellan that was never protrayed in history books of yore. The drawings were absolutely beautiful, full of so much detail and interesting features. This book makes a marvelous present for children

learning about history. After reading this book, I can't believe that

Hollywood has never made a movie about Magellan!

I have learn a lot of history of human traveling. It also answers some of my question. E.g why Brazil is the only nation in South America whose people speak Portuguese rather than Spanish.
