9780246132765: The Wind Off the Island (The mariner's library)

THE WIND OFF THE ISLAND is a sparkling account of a year the author and his wife spent cruising the Mediterranean. Together they explored Sicily and remote ports-of-call in the Greek islands.

The voyage of the Mother Goose is more than an interesting record of the voyage: it is clear testimony of Ernle Bradford's devotion to the sea, to history, and to graceful writing. In it we find evidence of the knowledge and experience that infuse his great historical works.

"Ernle Bradford set out to record a voyage. He succeeded in chronicling a way of life." (Publisher's Source)
