Re: Joshua Slocum
I agree, deniseO30!
A truly remarkable book. A Legendary voyage told with the same level of literary skill that Slocum had for his adventuring. A disarmingly well written story.
Another worthy volume about Slocum is, "The Hard Way Around, The passages of Joshua Slocum", by Geoffrey Wolff. He fills in a lot of Slocum's life history.
Getting a little long in the tooth, my wife and I have discussed, "The Josh Slocum Plan for Long Term Care"! He just kept going about his life until he couldn't manage the situation anymore. One more departure than arrival. I would love to follow his east to west rounding of The Horne.
