"I can't recommend this highly enough"
5 stars"

It has been several years since I read this fabulous, fabulous book. I didn't think I would enjoy such a book but couldn't have been proved more wrong. Severin writes very engagingly and I was not bored for one second. The tale of how he first gets the voyage to come together and the voyage itself is a wonderful one, do read it.

Description

Tim Severin joins the Modern Library Exploration series with his classic of modern adventure writing recounting his own journey sailing from Ireland to North America in an open boat made from ox-hides to prove the legend of St. Brendan, an 8th Century Irish monk who claimed to have sailed to a promised land far to the west.

Author Biography

Tim Severin, explorer, traveler, author, filmmaker, and lecturer, made his first expedition while he was still a student at Oxford: following the route of Marco Polo on a motorcycle. He has also re-created the journeys of Ulysses, Jason and the Argonauts, Sinbad, and Hsu Fu (which required sailing across the Pacific on a bamboo raft). He lives in Ireland. Jon Krakauer is the author of Into Thin Air, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and Into the Wild. His work has appeared in many magazines, including Outside, Smithsonian, and National Geographic. He chose the books in the Modern Library Exploration series for their literary merit and historical significance--and because he found them such a pleasure to read.
