Explores the Brendan myth,

This review is from: The Brendan Voyage (Kindle Edition)
Severin's Hazardous expedition explores one of the most epic voyages in Irish history. How much of the voyage is myth however? Severin and his companions painstakingly recreated St. Brendan's voyage, attending to every detail possible. I enjoyed Severin's descriptions of building the wooden framework and stitching the patchwork as much as the crazy weather and other challenges they encounter on the way. The re-telling of the legends and seafaring tales should themselves be a stand-alone book! Not quite a travel book, but not all adventure either. One for those who like being taken on a real journey with ups and downs.
