Synopsis

"The Sailor's Classics" library introduces a new generation of readers to the best books ever written about small boats under sail. It tells the incredible story of Captain John C. Voss, who, in 1904, completed a three-year journey across three oceans in a Native American dugout canoe converted to sail.

After working his way up from cabin boy to ship's master, Captain John C. Voss drifted ashore in 1895, becoming a hotelkeeper and family man in Victoria, British Columbia. He returned to the sea in 1897 to pursue fortune and adventure in small boats and later as a commander of several sealing schooners. Most details of his life, origins, and even his death are lost in obscurity. Jonathan Raban is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, the editor of The Oxford Book of the Sea, and author of ten critically acclaimed books, including Passage to Juneau. He is the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Heinemann Award for Literature, and received the New York Times Editors' Choice for Book of the Year for Old Glory and Bad Land. He has been called (by The Guardian) "the finest writer afloat since Conrad."
