5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly to be recommended, 15 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most excellent and enjoyable read opening up the wonderful world of the sextant and the courageous, and frequently anonymous men who explored and charted the world's coastlines.
At the same time David Barrie gives a good account of real ocean crossings under sail in small boats before the advent of fibreglass, electronics, dry decks and cabins, reliable marine engines and pretty much everything else which today is taken as standard by those who 'go to sea' in modern comfort and security.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gift for a friend to whom I had recommended the book, 22 Jan 2014

I ordered the book very close to Christmas as a present for a friend whom I had recommended it.
It's an excellent edition (far better than my own copy) arrived in time and I was delighted with the service

5.0 out of 5 stars Having waited years, 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having waited, as so many others have for the culmination of the Great Drudge I can only compliment the authors on their translation and elucidation of PLF's notes and memoires. Many of the passages flow with all his verve, soaring text and brings pictures to mind yet again - the storks leaving, the mad hare-eyed companion, . . . and more and more for you to find. Yes, it jumps about a bit, and no, in the circumstances if the wandering Byzantine histories and tribal migrations are not as extensive as before, no problem.
However, I'm just beginning to wonder HOW PLF could wander so far across Europe with ne'er an eye to what was happening in the bigger picture of the world around him? Yes, the sadness of the aristocrats of the Great Hungarian Plain is evident, as are those in Transylvania - a must read section . . . but these are hints and shadows of the world happening outside.
Read it - complete the journey and be prepared to start your own there soon

4.0 out of 5 stars hard going, 31 Jan 2013

Hard going - but an interesting view on a known event - permutations and complications arising from it's conclusions explain how the aftermath of the ruin of Europe occurred
