Rate this:
On September 6, 1522, a horribly battered ship manned by eighteen malnourished, scurvy-ridden sailors appeared on the horizon near a Spanish port. They were survivors of the first European expedition to circle the globe. Originally comprised of five ships and 260 sailors, the fleet's captain and most of its crew were dead. How did Ferdinand Magellan's voyage to circle the world -- one of the largest and best-equipped expeditions ever mounted -- turn into this ghost ship? The answer is provided in this tale of mutiny and murder spanning the entire globe, marked equally by triumph and tragedy.
