This is William Albert Robinson’s seminal 1944 travel book, "Deep Water and Shoal". Complete with cannibal encounters and contretemps with hostile tribesmen, this fascinating and exciting account of twenty-five-year-old Robinson’s epic sailing adventure is highly recommended for fans of fascinating travel writing. Few have written a book about sailing round the world as good as Mr. Robinson's, which is arguably one of the most enthralling travel books ever written. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

The story of an around the world sail taken in the late 1920s/1930s. The reader really feels as if he's there in many locales given the exquisite descriptions and place and people. Has me wanting to map our the route on Google Maps. Read full review
