Sailing Alone Around the World
Josh Slocum is oldschool but has a great sea-dog writing style and wonderful stories. I can't remember the name of his book exactly
is the title and I highly recommend it as well. He was the first man ever to do as the title suggests, and had a great time of it over 3 years, as a writer with a book deal in advance. Very well written. I've read it twice, and it's free on the kindle if you know where to look.
