Description - Saga of a Wayward Sailor by Tristan Jones

Saga of a Wayward Sailor is the engaging tale of Tristan Jones' sailing adventures around the North Atlantic aboard the Cresswell. Jones survives storms, dismastings, arrest by the Soviet Navy, being sunk by whales, and the smuggling of Edam cheese and Barbary apes. Through his eyes we get to meet an intriguing cast of dockside characters: Karl, the German fish-canning salesman; Pete, the Australian smuggler; Sissie, the Englishwoman who wheedles her way permanently aboard; and Nelson, 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.
