520    "The story of an uncovered voyage as colorful and 
       momentous as any on record for the Age of Discovery-and of
       the Black mariner whose stunning accomplishment has been 
       until now lost to history It began with a secret mission, 
       no expenses spared. Spain, plotting to break Portugal's 
       monopoly trade with the fabled Orient, set sail from a 
       hidden Mexican port to cross the Pacific--and then, 
       critically, to attempt the never-before-accomplished 
       return, the vuelta. Four ships set out from Navidad, each 
       one carrying a dream team of navigators. The smallest ship,
       guided by seaman Lope Martín, a mulatto who had risen 
       through the ranks to become one of the most qualified 
       pilots of the era, soon pulled far ahead and became 
       mysteriously lost from the fleet. It was the beginning of 
       a voyage of epic scope, featuring mutiny, murderous 
       encounters with Pacific islanders, astonishing physical 
       hardships-and at last a triumphant return to the New 
       World. But the pilot of the fleet's flagship, the 
       Augustine friar mariner Andrés de Urdaneta, later caught 
       up with Martín to achieve the vuelta as well. It was he 
       who now basked in glory, while Lope Martín was secretly 
       sentenced to be hanged by the Spanish crown as repayment 
       for his services. Acclaimed historian Andrés Reséndez, 
       through brilliant scholarship and riveting storytelling-
       including an astonishing outcome for the resilient Lope 
       Martín--sets the record straight. "--|cProvided by
