Born in the Breezes: The Seafaring Life of Joshua Slocum
Kathryn Lasky (au); Walter Lyon Krudop (il)
Joshua Slocum was one of the greatest sailing captains of the 19th century. “Born in the breezes,” as he said in his autobiography, he spent most of his life at sea. He even took his bride aboard ship & raised their children there. But as the century drew to a close, Captain Slocum found that his skills were no longer in demand. Gas, steam, & electricity were powering transportation, not wind. In 1895, now a widower in his fifties, he set off on the “Spray,” an old sloop that he had rebuilt plank by plank. He planned to sail around the world all alone. No one had ever attempted this feat before, & some said no one ever would. This is a triumphant & true story, gracefully written & splendidly illustrated.
