5.0 out of 5 stars Just doing it!, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sailing Alone Around the World (annotated) (Kindle Edition)
I've read the book a few times throughout my life and now I own it. I am a sailor with my own yacht and it gives me inspiration reading how Joshua did this all that time ago. I've also read his other books which I love and will purchase in due course.

Some of the words and phrases are rather strange, but then the book is over a hundred years old.This guy is an absolute navigating genius, read it in a couple of days, which is good for me.

Salty tales to be taken, at times, with a pinch of salt. Wonderfully evocative, amazing achievement and well written account - not sure I fully believe some of the anecdotes but, at a distance of 100 years perhaps, I should make allowances for an old sea dog! Love his sense of humour - his comments on the botanical expedition in New Zealand are priceless. Buy it, read it, enjoy.

One of those books I will always pick up to read again and again. Thoroughly enjoyable from cover to cover.

A great read for any keen sailor! But it will make you feel small in this age of tech !
