Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition
A Near Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with just a touch of wear to head and heel of the spine. Jones recounts his six-year voyage sailing on the lowest body of water in the world, the Dead Sea, and the highet, Lake Titicaca in the Andes. His primary goal in this adventure was to attempt to set the vertical sailing record of the world. this scrappy sailor endured snipers on the Red Sea, being capsized off the Cape of Good Hope, starving on the Amazon, hauling his boat over the rugged Andes to find the legendary Island in the Sun, and a tortuous trek through 6000 miles uncharted rivers to return to the sea.

About the Author: Tristan Jones was one of the most prolific and best-loved authors of sailing stories. 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. Jones wrote 16 books, including Encounters of a Wayward Sailor published by Sheridan House.
