This is a story from the Great Explorers collection.
Here are the stories of nine great adventures and the lives of the men who took part in them. They pushed back the frontiers of man's knowledge of the world by their vision, courage, and sheer doggedness. They were very different people, from bold adventurers facing the unknown with enjoyment to careful, more scientific individuals. Their journeys are placed within their historical context, but also contain the words of the men themselves.
Focusing on the first voyage to successfully circumnavigate the Earth, this entertaining original audiobook production brings to life for young audiences the bold Portuguese explorer, Ferdinand Magellan, who led an expedition far out to sea and well beyond the ends of the world as it was known. Frances Jeater, who has an extensive theater and television background and is also a past member of the BBC Radio Drama Company, is sympathetic in tone and precise in detailing politics, geography, and biography in this entertaining recording, a single from the Great Explorers of the World collection.
