Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by Penguin's innovative Great Ideas series, our new Great Journeys series presents the most incredible tours, voyages, treks, expeditions, and travels ever written- from Isabella Bird's exaltation in the dangers of grizzlies, rattlesnakes, and cowboys in the Rocky Mountains to Marco Polo's mystified reports of a giant bird that eats elephants during his voyage along the coasts of India. Each beautifully packaged volume offers a way to see the world anew, to rediscover great civilizations and legends, vast deserts andunspoiled mountain ranges, unusual flora and strange new creatures, and much more.

Synopsis:

The original disaster narrative tells how a confident, well-equipped Spanish expedition to explore the Florida mainland came utterly to grief through arrogance, storms, and bad luck, leaving a handful of survivors to stagger to Mexico City some years later.
