Get out your world atlas to accompany Joshua Slocum on an incredible journey in his sloop, “Spray,” circumnavigating the globe in 1895-98. No better voice than that of Bernard Mayes could have been picked for this voyage filled with adventures ranging from the total loneliness of the solo voyage to the tense fear of attack by Tierra del Fuego pirates. Although the adventure took place almost a hundred years ago, Bernard makes on-shore encounters in the Canaries, Spain, Africa, Mauritius and the Pacific Isles as exciting as they must have been to Slocum; his voice is the voice of a sailing gentleman.
