Ship’s Boy with Magellan
Young Pedro escapes his uncle who is planning to kill him in order to gain the family title and fortune. His escape route takes him around the world . . . literally, as the cabin boy on Magellan’s flagship the Trinidad. Lomask tells a tale of great adventure as Pedro experiences the joys and perils of the fleet Armada de Maluca. These include mutinies and battles with native people as well as with the sea herself. Pedro is one of the few who survive the voyage, and he returns to Spain to claim his birthright.
