About this product
- DescriptionMagellan, da Gama, and other 15th-century explorers spring to life in this Newbery-houred tale of the race between Portugal and the Venetian Republic to control the sea route to India. Lynd Ward's enchanting woodcuts illustrate this gripping adventure, hailed by The New York Times as a colourful history and a vivid drama.
- Author BiographyAgnes Danforth Hewes (1874-1963) was born in Tripoli to missionary parents and her formative years in Lebanon inspired a lifelong love of foreign cultures. She was awarded the Newbery Honor for Glory of the Seas (1934) and The Codfish Musket (1937) as well as for Spice and the Devil's Cave (1931). American artist and storyteller Lynd Ward (1905-85) illustrated more than 200 juvenile and adult books, working in wood engraving, watercolors, oil, and lithography. He is particularly famous for his woodcut-illustrated wordless novels, the precursors to today's graphic novels.
