Overview

"So much, and yet, not enough has been written about Ferdinand Magellan - humanity's greatest navigator of all times. In The Untold Magellan Story, the great conquistador speaks for himself, and tells it as it was. The book is history, not fiction.


Undoubtedly a thriller and a page-turner, his story takes the form of a Letter from him to the Peoples of the Oceans, the Islands, the Archipelagos and the Continents. Hear him tell of life and the joys and intrigues in the courts of Europe in the 1500's, the battles of conquest in Africa, South Asia and Asia Pacific that he was so part of, and the years of discovering the Americas and the Pacific, as he established once and for all that, indeed, the world is round.


Proof? He had gone around it. Get into his inner thoughts and introspections, his motives and real purposes, his awareness that he was humanity's consciousness knowing itself in the age of planetary self-discovery.


It has been 500 years. The Untold Magellan Story beckons the modern reader to look back and, perhaps, begin to understand the present better."
