New York : Knopf, 2003.
you ever imagined yourself as an explorer? Like those famous explorers
in the Middle Ages. Maybe Christopher Columbus sailing into the unknown.
Taking chances and going where no one had gone before. This is the
story of young Mateo, an orphan who sails with the great Ferdinand Magellan.
Magellan has been commissioned by the King of Spain to find the fabled
westward route to the Spice Islands. It had been speculated for years
that the Islands could be reached by sailing around South America instead
of going around Africa and sailing east. Find out what it may have
been like to be on that voyage. Learn about the mutinous crews, the
treacherous weather, the hunger, the work and the lost hope as the men
attempted to sail TO THE EDGE OF THE WORLD.
