Magellan's Navigator

Seasoned mariner Francisco Albo signs on with Magellan’s five-ship armada realizing possible shipwreck, storms, and even scurvy might lie ahead. However, the trials will be worth it if Magellan succeeds where Columbus failed…and finds a westward route to the rich Spice Islands of the East Indies. That success should assure his making the fortune he craves. First, the passage around the Americas must be found and the uncharted ocean beyond those lands traversed.

What the canny Greek doesn’t anticipate are treacherous rajahs, Magellan’s religious fervor, and mutiny will be a greater threat to the fleet than any hurricane…and that upon reaching the Philippines, Magellan will die in a senseless battle and a rajah will murder most of the fleet’s officers.Albo then reaches an uneasy alliance with a surviving mutineer and pilots the sole remaining ship around the world back to Spain.Magellan’s Navigator is Albo’s story.
