One of the most renowned sailing captains of his time, Joshua Slocum was born by the sea and spent most of his life on it. He took his bride aboard ship with him, and they even raised their children there. But as the nineteenth century drew to a close, Captain Slocum found that his skills were no longer in demand. Gas, steam, and electricity were powering transportation, not wind. In 1895, now a widower in his fifties, he set off on the Spray, an old sloop that he had rebuilt plank by plank. He planned to sail around the world all alone. No one had ever done this before, and some said no one ever would.<P>Here is a true and triumphant story, gracefully written and splendidly illustrated.
