Magellan And Cook

I just finished Over the Edge of the World, a fascinating account of Magellan's circumnavigation of the globe. He and Captain Cook are, in my opinion, the two greatest explorers, ever. Quite a coincidence how both were killed while exploring the Pacific by pissed off native islanders after taking bone-headed risks.
