The life story of the first man to sail alone around the world.

Slocum's epic journey of 46,000 miles required incredible seamanship and arduous labor. He outwitted Barbary pirates and unfriendly savages, passed through the wild and stormy Strait of Magellan twice, languished in the South Pacific and in Australia, rounded the Cape of Good Hope, and tied up at Fairhaven in 1898, more than three years later.
