The Last Great Adventure of Sir Peter Blake: With Seamaster and Blakexpeditions from Antarctica to the Amazon Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This large-format hardcover follows the late Sir Peter Blake on his ill-fated final voyage aboard the polar exploration yacht SEAMASTER. As the world knows, Blake was tragically murdered by river pirates in December 2001 while exploring the Amazon. This book tracks that voyage and at the same time pays homage to this extraordinary man. The SEAMASTER voyage began in New Zealand and ascended to 70?? S in the icy waters of Antarctica, then headed north to the rain forests of the Amazon. The ship ultimately sailed approximately 1,000 miles up the Amazon river before Blake was murdered on the return journey.

Book News Annotation:

This memorial volume contains a selection of entries from the logbooks kept during yachting legend Peter Blake's last voyage, which ended tragically when he was killed by pirates in the Amazon in December 2001. Lovingly presented in a large format edition (9.75x12.25"), the logbook entries are accompanied by color photos of the Seamaster, the remote areas of the voyage, and many of Blake himself. The volume chronicles travel from New Zealand to Antarctica then into Brazil and up a lengthy section of the Amazon. Alan Sefton, who edited the text, sailed with Blake and was his business partner.
