The Pacific Ocean covers one-third of the planet, but until 1513 no European knew it existed. In Pacific Passions, Frank Sherry tells the enthralling story of one of the most exciting periods of human history: the first 250 years of European exploration of the Pacific Ocean.
It is an unforgettable tale of bold exploration and the cataclysmic events that moulded 16th, 17th and 18th century Europe. Pacific Passions recounts some of the most heroic voyages in human history and places them in their proper historical contexts. It is popular history at its most exciting.
