"Round About the Earth: Circumnavigation from Magellan to Orbit" by Joyce E. Chaplin

Round About the Earth: Circumnavigation from Magellan to Orbit

is the first full history of around-the-world travel. In it, Joyce E. Chaplin brilliantly tells the story of circumnavigation.

Round About the Earth is a witty, erudite, and colorful account of the outrageous ambitions that have inspired men and women to circle the entire planet.
