About this Item

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 this title


In a salty, slashing style, Tristan Jones unfolds his extraordinary saga--a six year voyage during which he a covered a distance equal to twice the circumference of the world--revealing both a rich sense of history an insuppressible Welsh wit.

With a singleness of purpose as ferocious as nay hazard he encountered, Tristan Jones would not give up--even after dodging snipers on the Red Sea, capsizing off the Cape of Good Hope, starving in the Amazon, struggling for 3,000 miles against the mightiest sea current in the world, and hauling his boat over the rugged Andes three miles above sea level to find at last the legendary Island of the Sun. And beyond lay te most awesome challenge of all--the tortuous trek through 6,000 miles of uncharted rivers to find his way back to the ocean.

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.
