Harvard Historian Joyce Chaplin traces the outsized personalities, grand enterprises and inspired folly of globe-trotting men and women over the last 500 years. Beginning, naturally with Magellan (his was the first circumnavigation even if he died en route), she covers scientists, explorers, pirates and empire builders from James Cook to Charles Darwin, Phileas Fog (she includes fictional characters too), Amelia Earhart and many others all the way to Yuri Gagarin and John Glenn.
We’ve got more at Voyages of Discovery.
