Synopses & Reviews
Inspired by Slocum's "Sailing Around the World Alone," London built a 45' schooner called the Snark,
with the intent of sailing the world with his wife and crew. His first stop was Hawaii, where he learned to surf
in 1907. He then went on to the South Seas and the Solomon Islands. This book is always insightful, and often hilarious.
