Synopsis
[Audiobook CASSETTE Library Edition in vinyl case.]

[Read by Bernard Mayes]

Challenged by an expert who said it couldn't be done, Joshua Slocum, a fearless New England sea captain, set out in April 1895 to prove that a man could sail alone around the world. A little over three years and forty-six thousand miles later, the proof was complete. This is Slocum's own account of his remarkable adventures during the historic voyage of the ''Spray''.

Whether Slocum was more accomplished as a writer or sailor is hard to say. His writing style is fast paced, witty, and exhilarating, an absorbing match to his harrowing adventures -- adventures that included being chased by Moorish pirates off Gibraltar; escaping a fleet of hostile canoes; being submerged by a great wave off the Patagonian coast; an encounter with Black Pedro, ''the worst murderer in Tierra del Fuego''; and foiling a nocturnal attack by savages by strewing carpet tacks on the Spray's deck.
