As the first person to circumnavigate the globe alone, Captain Joshua Slocum is celebrated as the ?patron saint of small-boat voyagers, navigators, and adventurers all over the world? (Joshua Slocum Society), and heralded as the penultimate example of independent marine navigation at a time when the invention of steam had nearly put an end to the Golden Age of Sail. His timeless account,�Sailing Alone Around the World, still coveted by sailors and thrill-seekers alike, has continued to inspire scores of lone adventurers, and challenged countless readers to change their lives since its initial publication in 1900.
