LibraryThing Review

User Review  - AliceAnna - LibraryThing

Pretty entertaining. Could have been really dry, but Slocum showed a lot of humor and insight into human nature. He sailed in the mid to late 1890's facing pirates, cannibals, flat earthers, and a particularly nasty goat. It would make a great period movie. Read full review
