Description

First published in 1900, Joshua Slocum's autobiographical account of his solo trip around the world is one of the most remarkable and entertaining travel narratives of all time. Slocum set off alone from Boston in April 1895 and went on to join the ranks of the world's great circumnavigators. But by circling the globe without crew or consorts, Slocum outdid them all. His three-year solo voyage of more than 46,000 miles remains unmatched in maritime history of courage, skill, and determination.

Author Biography

Joshua Slocum was born in 1844. After his famous trip he became friends with Mark Twain and Theodore Roosevelt. In 1909 he sailed south from Martha's Vineyard and disappeared at sea. He was declared officially dead in 1924. Thomas Philbrick introduced the Penguin Classics edition of Richard Henry Dana's TWO YEARS BEFORE THE MAST.
