Around the World in a Hundred Years: From Henry the Navigator to Magellan
Review Date: 2/4/2008


In the 1400's, much of the earth was unmapped. Europeans knew there were gold and spices in China and Japan, but they had no idea how to get there, or what they would run into on their way. Yet some men felt they were smart and brave enough to figure it out, and here are their stories. Jean Fritz writes with fascinating detail and wry wit.
