Encounters of a Wayward Sailor


Product Description
Product Details


Jones was an absolutely full-time mariner who lived aboard various boats virtually from the age of fourteen. He was a prolific author, who wrote at length and entertainingly about his many adventures. This book is a collection of his articles and short stories that, in this reviewer s view, makes for even more than normally interesting Jones reading. * Fishing Boat World *
To open a book by Tristan Jones is to enter a world of deep and unalloyed satisfaction. Breathtaking descriptions of the sea, whether mountainous waves or calm tropical anchorages, an encyclopedic knowledge gained from a career which began at age 14 aboard sailing barges, friendships with other true seafarers like Moitessier and Tilman, indomitable courage it's all here. This is a marvelous collection of episodes gathered together, in affectionate memory, by his literary agent, Richard Curtis. For people who have never read Tristan Jones (who died in Thailand in 1995) this book is an excellent and gripping introduction. For cruising folk it is an essential bedside/bunkside book. * Yachting World *
