Author: Peter Lourie

Ferdinand Magellan was searching the new planet for a passage to the Pacific Ocean and the riches from the East."It was here Magellan found his passage to the Pacific at the same time as the Strait of  Magellan, and where Charles Darwin later  sailed the legendary Beagle. Sailing  his ships onward, he passed through  ominous land, exactly where smoke from unseen fires rose high inside the air. His quest took him down the coast of South America, on an expedition that seemed doomed to failure until  Magellan spied a waterway heading west. Joshua Slocum, who sailed the globe alone, outwitted pirates who lurked in coves and channels. He called the land Tierra del Fuego, or"land of fire. Peter Lourie takes young readers on a journey to the island at the finish in the earth that for centuries was shrouded in mystery.
