Joshua Slocum's epic solo voyage around the world in 1895 in the 37 foot sloop Spray stands as one of the greatest sea adventures of all time. It remains one of the major feats of single-handed voyaging, and has since been the inspiration for the many who have gone to sea in small boats.

Starting from Boston in 1895, by the time he dropped anchor in Newport, Rhode Island over three years after his journey began, he had cruised some 46,000 miles entirely by sail and entirely alone.

Slocum's account of his epic voyage is a classic of sailing literature, acclaimed as an unequalled masterpiece of vital yet disciplined prose. It will be welcomed by admirers of his legendary achievement.

'It is a timeless work that can be read again and again, and a story that totally absorbs the reader with its enormity and honest endeavour' RNSA Journal
'Slocum's prose is a model of its kind: honest, vivid, salty, and at times, lyrical' Traditional Boats and Tall Ships
'One of the all-time classic sailing narratives' Classic Boat
