All of the following are long out of print, but very good and by doing a search you can find copies.
“The Venturesome voyages of Captain Voss
”. Well written and ranks up there with “Sailing Alone around the World”, Joshua Slocum. Only Voss did a lot more interesting things!
A VERY good book, but hard to find is "Stars to Windward
". It tell an amazing story about Bruce and Sheridan Fahnestock's journey through the South Pacific
before and during World War II. Their notes, photographs, and the recordings they made of native drum and gong music
preserved as "Music For The Gods: The Fahnestock South Sea Expedition, Indonesia
," are in the Library of Congress.
Also, a great story told from another perspective is “I ran away to sea at fifty
” by Mary Sheridan, Bruce and Sheridan's mother!
Mary's own story is wonderfully and humorously written.
To find one of these books you need to do a search of used book stores or libraries. They are great books!
And I guess I need to point out that the Fahnestocks were relatives (very distant) of mine.
