Sinopse

"Sailing Alone Around The World" is the memoir of Joshua Slocum narrating his fabulous circumnavigation adventure around the world, undertaken at the end of the 19th century. Slocum was the first person to achieve this feat by sailing alone. The book, released in 1900, was an immediate success and influenced many other adventurers to also attempt similar feats. The highlights of the journey, as narrated by Joshua, include the perils of the ocean such as fog, storms, collision, loneliness, crisis, navigation, fatigue... It also includes the risks of coastal navigation with pirates, attacks from 'savages', coves, shoals, and coral reefs, grounding, and shipwreck. "Sailing Alone Around The World" is a delightful adventure book, one of those that we hate to interrupt and that, in the end, leaves us longing to also sail around the world.
