Synopsis: In To Venture Further, Tristan Jones tackles the infamous Kra Peninsula which divides the Andaman Sea from the Gulf of Thailand. Accompanied by his German mate, Thomas, and three disabled Thai youths, he makes his way through this short but exceedingly difficult passage in a small seagoing fishing boat.
Tristan and his crew take on floating debris and homemade dams that block their passage. They encounter colorful locals, including a raucous band of teenage monks. Because of a late monsoon season, Tristan is forced to navigate a dry riverbed, where he is towed by southern Thailand's only working elephant. They face mechanical failure and Tristan's funds run precariously low, yet somehow they survive all the incredible obstacles.
A memorable exploit of a master storyteller, To Venture Further is an inspiring story that reveals the awesome courage of a man willing to sacrifice all comforts for the unknown and the seemingly impossible.
About the Author: Tristan Jones, a legendary sailor, is the author of 16 books, including Saga of a Wayward Sailor, The Incredible Voyage and Yarns. He left school at the age of 14 to work on sailing barges and spent the rest of his life at sea-in the Royal Navy, as a delivery skipper, and as a daring seagoing adventurer travelling the world in search of new and ever greater challenges.
