Seller Inventory ZZN. Condition: NEUF. First published in , Joshua Slocum's autobiographical account of his solo trip around the world is one of the most remarkable -- and entertaining -- travel narratives of all time.
Setting off alone from Boston aboard the thirty-six foot wooden sloop Spray in April , Captain Slocum went on to join the ranks of the world's great circumnavigators -- Magellan, Drake, and Cook. But by circling the globe without crew or consorts, Slocum would outdo them all: his three-year solo voyage of more than 46, miles remains unmatched in maritime history for courage, skill, and determination.
Sailing Alone Around the World recounts Slocum's wonderful adventures: hair-raising encounters with pirates off Gibraltar and savage Indians in Tierra del Fuego; raging tempests and treacherous coral reefs; flying fish for breakfast in the Pacific; and a hilarious visit with Henry "Dr. Livingstone, I presume? A century later, Slocum's incomparable book endures as of the greatest narratives of adventure ever written.
