Overview:Castaway Boats - Slocum travelled for years with his father, the famous Captain Joshua Slocum. He offers here intimate records of a number of castaway boats and the survivors' adventures, including the Easter Island castaways, Shackleton's voyage, and the fated crew of the whaleboat Essex. Each thrilling account features meticulous detail and historical accuracy. Victor Slocum gathered information for this book for most of his life. He played a very active role in the famous voyage of the Liberdade. A young teenager at the time, Victor not only helped his father build an ocean-going junk-rigged canoe from scratch after Aquidneck was wrecked, he also helped sail this unlikely vessel more than 5000 miles home to North America. He gives an account of this feat as an introduction to the book.. A must read for every lover of the sea, its mysteries, its adventure and its romance.
