Description - Saga of a Wayward Sailor by Tristan Jones

The chronicles of Jones' adventures aboard his beloved "Cresswell", a wooden lifeboat converted to a cruising sailboat. Jones survives storms, dismastings, arrest by the Soviet navy, the smuggling of Edam cheeses and Barbary apes and being sunk by whales. We also get to meet an intriguing cast of dockside characters: Karl, the German fish-canning salesman; Pete, the Australian smuggler; Sissie, the Englishwoman who weedles her way permanently aboard; and Neson, Jones' three-legged dog.

Author Biography - Tristan Jones

Tristan Jones was one of the most prolific and best-loved authors of sailing stories in our time. A Welshman, he left school at age 14 to work on sailing barges and spent the rest of his life at sea--in the Royal Navy, as a delivery skipper, and as a daring adventurer in search of new seagoing challenges. The author of 16 books, including Seagulls in My Soup and One Hand for Yourself and One for the Ship, Jones lived in Phuket, Thailand for ten years, until his death in June 1995.
