About the Author
Brian Hammett has compiled this unique edition of Racundraa s First Cruise. The preface leads us into a treasure trove of unpublished writings, essays and photographs. The life of Ransomea s beloved Racundra is chronicled to its conclusion and there is an explanation of how he came to write the book. The original illustrations are enhanced by the inclusion of present--day photographs of the same locations. Brian Hammett researched the introduction by following Racundraa s route through Latvia and Estonia in his 33 foot gaff AVOLA.
