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 timeline that enhance readers' understanding of the period.

I read about him to learn and get information on him for my part in the Wax Museum. (We dress up like our character and recite a paragraph from memory in our "museum".) He also has to do with my heritage of the Philliphines.
