Conquering the Pacific by Andrés Reséndez

Reading this book is like attending the most thorough lecture series on a singular historical event. Andrés Reséndez, UC Davis professor of history, sets out to highlight Lope Martín, a mixed-race navigator and pilot who, for the first time in recorded European history, successfully circumnavigated the Pacific in 1565. Résendez details geologic, scientific, political, and intercultural history to give context to the full magnitude of Martín’s feat, and so evokes a vivid, visceral 16th century world.—Jocelyn
