Some brief overview of book

A middle-grade adaptation of Laurence Bergreen's adult bestseller, about Magellan's historic voyage around the globe. 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 worldone of the largest and best-equipped expeditions ever mountedturn into this ghost ship? The answer is provided in this thoroughly researched tale of mutiny and murder spanning the entire globe, marked equally by triumph and tragedy.

Thrilling, grisly, and completely true, Magellan Over the Edge of the World tells a story that not only marks a turning point in history, but also resonates powerfully with the present.
