OUT-OF-PRINT

"Jn the time since Irving died (1991) I have given much thought not only to him, but to his life as a whole. Few people are able to use their full talents happily in their way of life. This was his great blessing." In a famous Afterword written half a century after this voyage, Capt. Johnson added what he felt he had learned from his experience, after sailing his two Yankees seven times around the world with young people in crew. That Afterword has become a testament of the sail training movement. Exy's testimony, added for this special edition, rounds out the picture of how the partnership of two very individual people worked-and why. Delivery : Dec . 1, 1995

Price: SC $11.75, HC $21.75. Please add $2 s/h.
