Review:

"This gripping sea yarn is at once a riveting adventure story and a testament to human tenacity. In a salty, slashing style, he unfolds his extraordinary saga, revealing both a rich sense of history and an insuppressible Welsh wit."

"If you aren't a fan of Tristan Jones yet and you love good sea stories, you'll become one as soon as you begin reading any one of his 16 books. And there's no better book to start with than this one. . . It's a fantastic read. Don't miss it."

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.
