The Circumnavigators - by Don Holm - Table of Contents
This is an old classic book that recounts the tales of all the old circumnavigators, most of whom sailed around the world alone.
It's my all time favorite sailing book, and I have read it countless times. It made me realize that ordinary people can live their sailing dreams. The chapters are short, and each chapter is the story of a different circumnavigator.
The book is out of print, and I'm happy that the author gave permission for the book to be put up on the web to inspire people to live their dreams.
