Publisher's description: Ferdinand Magellan's daring circumnavigation of

the globe in the sixteenth century was a three-year odyssey filled with

sex, violence, and amazing adventure. Now in Over the Edge of the World,

acclaimed author Laurence Bergreen, interweaving a variety of candid,

first-person accounts, some previously unavailable in English, brings to

life this groundbreaking and majestic tale of discovery that changed many

long-held views about the world and the way explorers would henceforth

navigate its oceans. In 1519 Magellan and his fleet set sail from Seville,

Spain, to find a water route to the Spice Islands in Indonesia, where the

most sought-after commodities -- cloves, pepper, and nutmeg -- flourished.

Most important, they were looking for a passageway, a strait, through the

great landmass of the Americas that would lead them to these fabled

islands. Laurence Bergreen takes readers on board with Magellan and his

crew as they explore, navigate, mutiny, suffer, and die across the seas.

He also recounts the many unusual sexual practices the crew experienced,

from orgies in Brazil to bizarre customs in the South Pacific. With a

fleet of five ships and more than two hundred men, they had set out in

search of the Spice Islands. Three years later they returned with an

abundance of spices from their intended destination, but with just one

ship carrying eighteen emaciated men. They suffered starvation, disease,

and torture, and many died, including Magellan, who was violently killed

in a fierce battle. A man of great tenacity, cunning, and courage,

Magellan was full of contradictions. He was both heroic and foolish,

insightful yet blind, a visionary whose instincts outran his ideals.

Ambitious to a fault and not above using torture and murder to maintain

control of his ships and sailors, he survived innumerable natural hazards

in addition to several violent mutinies aboard his own fleet -- and it

took no less than the massed forces of fifteen hundred men to kill him.

This is the first time in nearly half a century that anyone has attempted

to narrate the complete story of Magellan's unprecedented circumnavigation

of the globe -- to tell this truly gripping and profoundly important story

of heroism, discovery, and disaster. A voyage into history, a tour of the

world emerging from the Middle Ages into the Renaissance, an

anthropological account of tribes, languages, and customs unknown to

Europeans, and a chronicle of a desperate grab for commercial and

political power, Over the Edge of the World is a captivating tale that

rivals the most exciting thriller fiction.
