He left a sheltered home, the pomp and grandeur of court circles, and his adored young princess, and entered the new life with courage and spirit. His quiet devotion and loyalty to Magellan, in contrast to most of the crew, give focus to the story of long months of hardship, mutiny and hunger as the ships made their perilous way around the world.

A swift paced, informative story, with a touch of credible romance.
