Arturo Giraldez provides a rich history of the ships and sailors that launched the global economy. Beginning with the founding of Manila in 1571 and ending in 1815 when the last galleon left Acapulco for the Philippines, these vessels braved weather and pirates to establish a vital connection between the Spanish empire in America with Asia.
