Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

On his 40,000 mile, three year voyage, Joshua Slocum visited six continents where he encountered ambassadors cannibals, presidents, and outlaws.

Synopsis:

Joshua Slocum was believed to be the first man to sail single-handed around the world. After a distinguished career, where he worked his way up from cabin boy to captain, Joshua Slocum wrecked his ship off the coast of Brazil. Turning this catastrophe to his advantage, he built a sailing canoe from the wreckages, and sailed back to New York. Moreover, he wrote Voyage of the Liberdad a chronicle of his trip, and earned some literary success. This was the spur to attempt his perilous voyage!

Joshua Slocum was the first man to sail alone around the world. It was a feat that made him the "patron saint" of small boat sailors everywhere. His voyage, retold in Sailing Alone Around the World, took place from 1895 to 1898. It made Slocum and his little boat SPRAY forever famous.
