With Sir Francis Drake in command, a fleet of five small ships left Plymouth in December 1577. By the time the expedition reached the Pacific Ocean only one remained, the Golden Hinde.
The adventures of Drake as he devastated Spanish treasure ships, charted unknown lands and became the first captain safely to circumnavigate the globe make this one of most amazing of all human adventures. But beyond telling a great story for a new generation Bawlf suggests more - that Drake had secret orders which he fulfilled and which make him - 200 years before Cook - one of the greatest explorers the world has ever known.
