A collection of some of Jones' finest stories. He explains how his writing career began, and draws on his many adventures to recall the memorable people he has met and to depict the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. One tale takes after A. Conan Doyle, recounting the mystery of the MARY CELESTE, and another, the Conrad-inspired "Breakdown, " tells of a troubled steamship. Others involve an unlikely salvage operation in Ibiza and a strange rendezvous on the African coast.
