THE VOYAGES OF JOSHUA SLOCUM

EDITED WITH COMMENTARIES BY WALTER MAGNES TELLER

PUBLISHED BY ASHFORD PRESS PUBLISHING, 1985

Of all the great American sailing ship Captains, Joshua Slocum is the most legendary, when Joshua Slocum brought the 37-foot SPRAY into harbor at Newport, R.I., on the morning of June 27, 1898, he completed an unprecedented feat of seamanship never before accomplished. For the first time in history, a man had sailed alone around the world. Eleven years later, Slocum once again set out alone, bound for the Orinoco River. He and the SPRAY were never seen again, and no clue to his fate was ever found.

In the 60 years since Captain Slocum's successful circumnavigation, his story about the voyage, Sailing Alone Around The World has become a classic, but only a few of its readers know the captains other books, The Voyage of the Liberdade and The voyage of the Destroyer from New York to Brazil. W. M. Teller has rescued these two neglected sagas from oblivion and in addition has discovered a new mine of Slocum material in the Aquidneck correspondence, printed here for the first time. This volume is thus the first complete collection of all the known writing of a great American seafarer
