Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a pre-1923 historical reproduction that was curated for quality. Quality assurance was conducted on each of these books in an attempt to remove books with imperfections introduced by the digitization process. Though we have made best efforts - the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience. We believe this work is culturally important and have elected to bring the book back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide.

Synopsis:

Joshua Slocum's solo voyage around the world stands as one of the greatest sea adventures of all time. Starting from Boston in 1895, by the time he dropped anchor in Rhode Island over three years later, he had cruised some 46,000 miles entirely by sail and entirely alone.

Synopsis:

In the fair land of Nova Scotia a maritime province there is a ridge called North Mountain overlooking the Bay of Fundy on one side and the fertile Annapolis valley on the other. On the northern slope of the range grows the hardy spruce-tree well adapted for ship-timbers of which many vessels of all classes have been built.
