Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you have any desire to sail the oceans and get away from the rat race, both of the included stories will definitely transport you to a different time and place in a memorable way.

Slocum has a keen eye for details and illustrates his experiences in a way any serious reader will enjoy. The technology is basic and so is the man. Arm chair sailors, especially, will enjoy cruising with Slocum and this tale will find a special place on your bookshelf, I'm sure.

I've done some sailing, but am not intrepid enough to sail around the world by my lonesome. To think that this was done completely solo by someone who accomplished it before the age of radio, GPS, modern charting, and even life jackets, is quite admirable.
