The longest voyage; circumnavigators in the age of discovery by Robert Silverberg( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 1997 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Silverberg's The Longest Voyage captures the drama and danger and personalities in the colorful story of the first voyages around the world. In only a century, circumnavigators in small ships charted the coast of the New World and explored the Pacific. Characterized by fierce nationalism, competitiveness, and bloodshed, it was a century much like our own." "Silverberg brings these early ocean explorers intensely alive in The Longest Voyage. Captured within the total context of political climax, social values, and historic change that made the Age of Discovery one of the most exciting and dramatic in all history, Magellan, Drake, Cavendish, Noort, Spilbergen, Schouten, and Le Muire are strangely contemporary."--BOOK JACKET
