Description

On April 24, 1895, Captain Joshua Slocum set out on a three-year journey to circumnavigate the world alone by boat. Crossing the Pacific and Atlantic oceans in his sloop, the Spray, Slocum visited South Africa, South America, and Australia before returning home as the first man to successfully sail around the world solo. Slocum's memoir tells of pirate attacks, gale-force winds, strange hallucinations and the ever-present threat of shipwreck. Restless and land-weary, Slocum set sail again in 1909 and was never heard from. He was declared legally dead in 1924. Sailing Alone Around the World was originally published as installments from Slocum's journal. The original work is generously illustrated and remains one of the greatest narratives of seafaring adventure ever written. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
