Slow Boats to China

Slow Boats to China Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was a simple idea, the kind all of us have had at one time or another. Take a series of ships of different sizes and kinds, go where they lead and see what happens. Inspired by great sea writers like Jack London, Herman Melville and Joseph Conrad, Gavin Young decided he would port-hop to some far destination on the other side of the world. The end of the line would be China.

Review:

"With its magical evocation of the past and the present, of far-off lands and people, vivid skies and bizarre flora and fauna, Slow Boats to China is compulsively readable and a travel book of rare distinction."
