About the Author:

Walter Magnes Teller was widely recognized as the foremost Slocum scholar of our time. In addition to editing this volume of Slocum's complete writings, he wrote two books on Slocum and several personal narratives about New England. He also edited On the River: A Variety of Canoe and Small Boat Voyages. He died in 1993 at the age of 82.

Review:

...for readers who love the sea and the well-told tale, the work of Joshua Slocum will always be rewarding. He lived in an era when self-reliance was not a virtue but a necessity. From an ancient rotting oysterman, he built a sweet little ship and sailed her around the world. From a hard, bitter life, he built a literary monument to the freedom of the seas. ( Living Aboard)

Grand to have the excuse to re-read Sailing Alone Around the World, to find the wit as dry as ever, to savour again the tintacks and the pilot of the Pinta. But how does one review such a classic, except to say, 'Read it!' to those who have not? ( Cruising Association Bulletin)

Slocum's singlehanded circumnavigation is still an inspiration to most small vessel sailors, and the book makes fascinating reading for all sailors, especially those planning their own circumnavigations. ( Sailing)
