In Drake's Wake


Michael Turner

35 mm Photographic Slides

This unique and comprehensive digital Drake slide library will be of significant value to authors and publishers of books, wall charts, maps and DVDs.

Duplicate narrated Drake slide collections are available for both private use and public lectures.

I am personally available to deliver illustrated lectures worldwide, for example on cruise ships, especially if they are sailing in Drake's wake.

My Drake picture library will stimulate a money saving choice of material for TV documentaries.

Books and Manuscripts

My books In Drake's Wake comprise five volumes. The Early Voyages, The World Voyage, The Later Voyages, Drake's Wake In England and Drake's Movements can be purchased from - Paul Mould Publishing.

I can supply information packs with a topographical emphasis tailored to any aspect of Drake's life and voyages. I have edited the manuscripts of other Drake authors. With the support of Susan Jackson, we are the world's ultimate Drake resource.

- Education

I have developed a - Drake theme day, which I am available to deliver to schools worldwide. This includes a slide presentation of Drake's world voyage; a Drake DVD timeline; a graduated worksheet of Drake's life; a drama workshop based upon any aspect of his life and a video of my BBC TV documentary that marked the 400th anniversary of Drake's death.


I am prepared to lead Drake backpacking tours of up to 14 days to locations such as Panamá and the Cape Verde Islands. These stunning locations offer a wealth of interest and experience beyond that of academically retracing Drake's movements. My books have provided itineraries for independent travellers who wish to visit Drake locations.

Drake Exploration Society

To mark the 400th year of Drake's death, I founded the - Drake Exploration Society.
