A Welshman’s witty and gritty sailing adventure memoir with “the bite of fine sea salt and a whiplike delivery” (Kirkus Reviews).
Follow the supreme adventurer, Tristan Jones, as he takes a solitary and intrepid six-year voyage on his small craft, The Sea Dart. Covering a distance twice the circumference of the globe, from the lowest body of water in the world—the Dead Sea—to the highest—Lake Titicaca in the Andes—Jones finds himself «a thousand times beyond the limit of endurance.» With tenacity stronger than any obstacle, Jones refuses to give up his adventure, even after falling prey to several disasters that could have killed him. Struggling against the mighty current of the Amazon, hauling his boat over the Andes Mountains and capsizing off the Cape of Good Hope do not discourage him.
This gripping story is a testament to his indomitable spirit and thirst for danger.
