Reviews of Sir Francis Drake

Overall customer rating: 5.000

Informative and a pleasure to read

by pjdriver on Feb 18, 2010

I'm not a Scholar. I just enjoy reading and learning all kinds of History. This book to me was well written i.e. enjoyable, and easy to read without being at such a level so as to insult the average adult reader's intelligence. The first chapter is a little dry because of the many details on Drakes early background. After that I became absorbed in the account. I also appreciate the Author pointing out where various accounts of the same events differ, and which one seems more credible, and why. I highly recommend this book.
