Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » For 20 years tough, resourceful, sailing skipper Slocum navigated the oceans of the world, owned ships, built ships, survived mutiny and shipwrecks, until a last ill-fated voyage on which his crew were decimated by smallpox and his ship, with all his wealth, was lost on a South American sand bar. Back home, with no ship and little money a friend, perhaps as a joke, offered Slocum a ship. He found her in a field, half rotten, with gaps in her decks and grass growing through the hull. On her transom, in peeling paint, could just be read the name Spray. It is the story of this ship, how he rebuilt her and in 1895 became the first man to voyage singlehanded around the world that is told in this book. The final sentence: 'The days passed happily with me wherever my ship sailed' epitomizes the genial good humour with which the many adventures on land and sea are recounted. This is the special quality that brings readers back to enjoy Slocum's book again and again. (Kirkus UK)
