From the Back Cover

Once out of sight of land, mariners had no reliable way of telling their exact position in the world's seemingly endless oceans, so on 1714 Parliament offered a 20,000 prize to anyone who could accurately measure longitude at sea.

This is the true story of one man's forty-year struggle to win the prize money by proving that his mechanical clock was the answer, not the stars as most people in the scientific establishment believed.

It also tells the story of Rupert Gould, who two centuries later tracked down the four machines Harrison had built and took on the task of restoring both the reputation and the physical condition of the clocks, enabling future generations to realise the significance of Harrison's vision.
