As the first person to circumnavigate the globe alone, Captain Joshua Slocum is celebrated as the patron saint of small-boat voyagers, navigators, and adventurers all over the world (Joshua Slocum Society), and heralded as the penultimate example of independent marine navigation at a time when the invention of steam had nearly put an end to the Golden Age of Sail. Much more than your typical sailor s yarn, Slocum s journey features unrivaled descriptions of gargantuan waves, ferocious winds, and mesmerizing cultural encounters. In Sailing Alone Around the World, Captain Slocum and his wholesome and noble ship, Spray, ultimately discover that a life truly lived is on the sea. This new edition features the original illustrations by Thomas Fogarty and George Varian."
