Epic in scope and spellbinding in every detail, Sir Joshua Slocum’s famous account of his three-year-long solo journey around the world—the first ever made—has already inspired a generation of readers. As it describes adventure, storms, and survival on the high seas, every turn of the page
is thrilling, moving, terrifying, and exhilarating. “A literate and absorbing yarn....His story is a convincing tale of the intelligence, skill and fortitude that drove a master navigator.”—The New York Times. “A classic book.... Slocum’s writing is as elegant as his thirty-seven-foot sloop, Spray.”—The New Yorker.
