Desperate Voyage by John Caldwell

£5.00

The course of true love and all that..

This is the tale of an idiot who was married in Australia in 1945 and left for Panama after a 3-day honeymoon.  A year later and he was so keen to get back to his bride he decided to sail there – a mere 9,000 or so miles – on his own with no sailing or navigational experience. No, none, none whatsoever.   

A good yarn that will make a yachtsperson scream quite a lot, a cynic will reach for the sick-bag and a romantic reach for the tissues…. 

It’s a Readers Union publication 1952 with a stylish dust jacket – slightly nibbled –we assume by small fish, and a bit discoloured – we hope by age. 

The book is in good condition.

174 pages of good reading.

5½ x 8¼ inches.
