really liked it

Another great, nonfiction selection from our Book Club! Riveting. I loved all the detail -- as gross as it sometimes was (how do you defecate on a ship with no latrine? and what do you use for toilet paper? read this to find out). The book left me wanting to know more about Magellan and how others viewed him. Clearly a polarizing figure, who this author takes a shine to for the most part. Definitely worth a read!
