Adventurous Armada - The story of Legazpi's expedition.

Here is a story of high adventure, to excite the imagination of young readers and to hold the interest of their elders. All who enjoy tales of historical endeavour will be stirred by Adventurous Armada, for the story it tells of the 16th century expedition of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi deserves to rank with the classics of its kind. Legazpi's armada sailed from Mexico in 1564, under orders from King Philip to win the Philippines for Spain. Andrew Sharp's account of the expedition is a record of adventure and achievement, enlivened by mutiny, marooning, treasure-seeking and strange encounters among exotic islands. Adventurous Armada is taken from 16th century Spanish sources which have never previously been rendered into a full and systematic narrative in English.
