Fiche détaillée de "Sailing alone around the world"

Résumé
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. Setting off alone from Boston aboard the thirty-six foot wooden sloop Spray in April 1895, Captain Slocum went on to join the ranks of the world's great circumnavigators -- Magellan, Drake, and Cook. But by circling the globe without crew or consorts, Slocum would outdo them all: his three-year solo voyage of more than 46,000 miles remains unmatched in maritime history for courage, skill, and determination.
