This will "pique the curiosity of readers who have not previously been interested in the life of Capt. Joshua Slocum, while providing a refreshingly complete picture for those who have wanted to know more about the man whose true-life adventures rival the tales told by great fiction writers" says reviewer Barry Antel, in WoodenBoat No. 256.
"A Man for All Oceans" is the most thoroughly researched biography of the masterful and even mystical sailor and author, Captain Joshua Slocum, and as such is unlikely ever to be surpassed. --W. H. Bunting
Grayson casts a revelatory light not only on Slocum but the times in which he lived and sailed.
In his fascinating biography of a great adventurer and author of the classic "Sailing Alone Around the World", Stan Grayson opens up the extraordinary, mysterious life of a captain of the oceans who could never master life on land.
