The most detailed and celebrated autobiographical account of a solo circumnavigation of the globe in the age of sail. Slocum, a naturalized American, designed, built, provisioned, and skippered his small sloop, the Spray, around the world in 1895-1898. The book chronicles every facet of the voyage from technical specifics of the ship and supplies to lively accounts of the people and places Slocum visited along his 46,000-mile journey. Sailing Alone was, in its own time, a very popular book, and it remains so today, having been reprinted many times throughout the 20th century. However, this is the first high-quality facsimile reproduction to date, faithfully reproducing the original text, art, and striking cover of the rare first edition.
