Some black & white drawings. one map, CLIP - In 1979 Gavin Young, fascinated since childhood by the sea and ships, set off from Greece eastwards to China, travelling by whatever local waterborne transport he could find at the time. The story of that extraordinary voyage was told in the highly succe ssful Slott, Boats to China. "The sequel, Slott, Boats Home, is the story of an equally remarkable sea journey, from China hack to England, this time passing through the exotic islands of the South Seas and not only achieving the true mariner's ambition of rounding the Horn, but landing on it as well. Stimulated by the great writers of sea stories - Conrad. Melville, Jack London-Gavin Young describes with wit, compassion and a genuine feeling for people and for the flavour of places, the charms and paradoxes of Shanghai; the gentle beauty of life in S amoa a century after Robert Louis Stevenson; and the touching hospitality of a unit of Chilean marines who during the Falklands War were stationed at what must be the loneliest military outpost in the world- Cape Horn Island. His transport ranged from perhaps the least romantic of all vessels, a modern container ship, via local colourful rustbuckets with more cockroaches than crew, to a Russian cruise liner filled with well-heeled Germans who couldn't forget the Second World War. Several stages of his voyage exposed him to potential disaster, none more than the mutiny and shipwreck of the Piranha off the coast of Brazil. Bookseller Inventory # 003833
