I just finished reading an interesting book, The Secret Voyage of Sir Francis Drake. It left me with a couple of questions…
How accepted is the notion that Sir Francis Drake did was, in fact, the first European to explore the coast of the Pacific Northwest (perhaps as far as Alaska)?
One of the events mentioned in the book that is part of the historical record is Drake’s capture of a Spanish treasure ship nicknamed “Cacafuego”. Does this this mean what I think it means… Shit Fire? What’s up with that?
