display_description First published in 1900, "Sailing Alone Around the World" is the detailed account of how Joshua Slocum would become the first person to circumnavigate the globe by himself. Aboard a sloop named the 'Spray', which Slocum himself rebuilt and refitted, he would depart from Boston on April, 24th, 1895 on this remarkable journey. Over the course of the next three years the boat would take him to Gloucester, Nova Scotia, Azores, Gibraltar, Morocco, the Canary Islands, the Cape Verde Islands, Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro, Maldonado, Montevideo, through the Strait of Magellan, through the Cockburn Channel, Port Angosto, Juan Fernandez, Marquesas, Samoa, Fiji, Sydney, Melbourne, Tasmania, Cooktown, Christmas Island, Keeling Cocos, Rodrigues, Mauritius, Durban, Cape Town, Transvaal, St Helena, Ascension Island, Devil's Island, Trinidad, Grenada, Newport, and finally back to Fairhaven in Massachusetts. Filled with numerous illustrations, "Sailing Alone Around the World" is a real-life nautical tale of adventure filled with perilous encounters and challenges. A classic story of self-determination, "Sailing Alone Around the World" has inspired generations of sailors and adventurers alike ever since its original publication.
