Format: Hardcover
The book I'm reviewing is THE SEARCH FOR CAPTAIN SLOCUM by Teller - Carles Scribner and sons, New York; 1956. I'm guessing it is the original of the book mentioned above. After reading Victor Slocum's book about his father, and SAILING ALONE AROUND THE WORLD, I at first found this work a bit redundant, but then I didn't understand its intent. By telling the story of Joshua's life, Mr. Teller attempts to define why Capt. Slocum disappeared. It represents the last of the triad - Victor's book about his father, the Captain's SAILING ALONE AROUND THE WORLD, and this work. Together they provide an understanding of a man whose life changed with the sudden death of his first wife, the only woman he truly loved, who is buried in the American cemetary in Buenos Aires. Read from this perspective, the book becomes both an integral and essential part of the whole story.
