Summary

Embárcate en una de las mayores aventuras de la Historia de la humanidad: la primera vuelta al mundo de Juan Sebastián Elcano.
 
En julio de 1526, Elcano se encuentra al borde la muerte. Está en medio del Pacífico, e intenta llegar a la Especiería por segunda vez. Al ver cerca el fin, decide redactar su testamento y dictar sus memorias.
 
En ellas habla de su infancia ligada a la mar, sus amores y sus hijos, su hermosa nao que puso a las órdenes del Gran Capitán en Italia y de su traición a la Corona. Y de cómo en Sevilla conoció a Fernando de Magallanes y embarcó a sus órdenes rumbo a las Molucas para probar que pertenecen a España, dando comienzo a la epopeya que cambiaría la visión del mundo para siempre.
 
Sangrientos motines, despiadadas tormentas, vientos helados, naufragios, emboscadas indígenas y el sabotaje de los espías de la corona portuguesa, que quería a toda costa mantener su monopolio del comercio de las especias, no impidieron que dieciocho supervivientes a las órdenes de Elcano regresasen tres años después cargados de un tesoro fabuloso.
 
Esta novela, llena de aventura, acción y rigor, conmemora su hazaña en el V centenario de la primera vuelta al mundo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Embark on one of the greatest adventures in the history of mankind: Juan Sebastián Elcano’s first trip around the world.
 
In July 1526, Elcano was almost on his death bed. He was in the middle of the Pacific ocean trying to reach the spice trade market for the second time. Seeing that his end was near, he decided to write his will and write down his memoirs.
 
In them he talks about his childhood always near the sea, his past loves and his children, his beautiful great sailboat that he made available to the Great Captain in Italy and his betrayal of the Crown. And how in Seville he met Fernando de Magallanes and under his orders embarked to the Maluku Islands to prove that they belonged to Spain, making this the epic beginning that would change the way we saw the world forever.
 
Bloody riots, ruthless storms, ambushes by indigenous people, or any sabotage from the Portuguese Crown spies, who wanted at all costs to keep their monopoly on the spice trade, none of that would prevent them from returning three years later with an extraordinary treasure.
 
This novel, full of adventure, action, and accuracy, commemorates Elcano’s feat on the 500-year anniversary of his first trip round the world.
