In the tradition of Tim Flannery's '1788' by Watkin Tench, and 'The Life And Adventures Of William Buckley', comes the ripping yarn of the real first solo round-the-world sailor.
This marvellous boy's own (true) adventure story relates Joshua Slocum's epic three-year voyage in a rebuilt whaler - sixty-odd years before Francis Chichester - including an encounter with pirates and a narrow escape from murderous Fuegians.
