Fact Fiction Friday ~ Sir Francis Drake

Continuing our new and regular feature here at Historical Fiction.  

Each Friday we will publish an historical fact based upon the date. Each fact will be accompanied by a book(s) title and perhaps a review or other snippet.

Sir Francis Drake by John Sugden4th April 1581 - Francis Drake is Knighted by Elizabeth I for completing his circumnavigation of the World.

This biography, Sir Francis Drake by John Sugden is well researched and an easy to read book. There is much on line data about Drake. He was born in Tavistock, some 35 miles from where I am currently sitting.

Without the curiosity and bravery of men like Drake how small would our world be I wonder?
