Curious Voyages- A collection of astoundingly true tales
Russell Kenery, a yachtsman and confessed history geek, has undertaken the retelling of these true tales of curious voyages. The evocative illustrations by Andrew Murray illuminate the collection help transport the reader, and in themselves are an outstanding body of marine artwork. The choice nuggets in this book offer five minutes, or an hour, of complete distraction.
Over thousands of years the world was wide with wind-powered boats, one of man's most beautiful constructions, and sailors had to struggle in the age-old game of Man vs Sea.
This collection of tales is not a history of sail, it's a voyage through centuries of curious sailing adventures.
