Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. In April 1895, at the age of fifty-one, Joshua Slocum departed Boston in his thirty-six-foot sloop Spray, a derelict boat he had rebuilt himself. Three years and 46,000 miles later he returned, having accomplished one of the greatest feats in maritime history&#151;to become the first person to circumnavigate the globe single-handedly. To crown the achievement, Slocum wrote this remarkable account of his voyage, Sailing Alone Around the World, an instant best-seller and one of literature's greatest voyage narratives. Despite having only a third-grade education, Slocum was as gifted a writer as he was a shipwright and navigator. In clear and vigorous prose, he paints a vivid, even poetic picture of his voyage with its many breathtaking sights and harrowing adventures&#151;including skirting the paradisiacal South Sea islands, braving terrifying storms and treacherous coral reefs, and being chased by pirates. A portrait also emerges of the sailor himself, made up from Slocum's heartfelt simplicity, wry sense of humor, meditative reflections on solitude, and ability to find companions in his animate and inanimate surroundings. In the fall of 1909, Slocum set sail from Martha's Vineyard and was never seen again. But his book survives as a testament to the skill, courage, and determination of the man known around the world as the patron saint of small-boat voyagers and navigators, and adventurers of every stripe. With 68 drawings and 3 original maps. Dennis Berthold, Professor of English, has taught at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, since 1972. He specializes in nineteenth-century American literature and has published scholarly articles and books on Charles Brockden Brown, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Margaret Fuller, Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman, and Constance Fenimore Woolson."

  • "When a ship under his command was wrecked on the coast of Brazil in 1887, it seemed that his maritime career had ended in disgrace. Not one for retiring to earthy pastures, Slocum rebuilt a hundred-year old sloop and set off from Boston in 1895 on the first single-handed circumnavigation of the globe."
  • "This maritime classic recounts the remarkable tale of the first person to circumnavigate the globe single-handedly. New England sea captain Joshua Slocum tells of encountering "the worst murderer in Tierra del Fuego," foiling a nocturnal attack by savages, being submerged by a great wave off the Patagonian coast, and other harrowing events during his three-year voyage. A large print classic for maritime enthusiasts and anyone intrigued by incredible feats of skill and daring."
  • "Sailing Alone Around the World (1899) is a sailing memoir by Joshua Slocum about his single-handed global circumnavigation aboard the sloop Spray . Slocum was the first person to sail around the world alone, the book was an immediate success and highly influential in inspiring later travelers. Captain Slocum, a highly experienced navigator and ship-owner, rebuilt and refitted the derelict sloop Spray in a seaside pasture at Fairhaven, Massachusetts during a thirteen-month period between early 1893 and 1894. Between April 24, 1895 and June 27, 1898, Slocum, aboard the Spray, crossed the Atlant."@en

  • "A fifty-five year old man who has spent his working life in large sailing ships, is the first person to sail single-handedly around the world. He does it in a small boat he has rebuilt himself out a wreck of a boat he was given for free. Except for the fact he was born in Nova Scotia, you might call him everybody's ideas of an old time Yankee, thrifty, a loner, with a dry sense of humor, never getting too excited about anything. His account of his three-year trip around the world has all of these virtues, and is one of the classics of small-boat sailing.-- publisher's description."@en

  • "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 singlehanded 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 v"@en

  • "Captain Joshua Slocum's solo voyage around the world in the 37-foot sloop the Spray in 1895 undoubtedly stands as one of the greatest sea adventures of all time.

  • "Setting off alone from Boston aboard the 36 foot wooden sloop Spray in April 1895, Capt. Slocum went on to join the ranks of the world's great circumnavigators. But by circling wthe globe without crew or consorts, Slocum would outdo them all. His three year solo voyage of more than 46,000 miles remains unmatched in maritime history of its courage, skill and determination. Includes hair-raising encounters with pirates off Gibraltar and dnagerous natives in Tierra del Fuego, raging tempests and treacherous coral reefs, flying fish for breakfast in the Pacific, and a hilarious visit with explorer Henry Stanley in South Africa."
