The narrative of a voyage around the world in a Windjammer in 1919. This is a vintage glimpse into the sea-faring lifestyle of times past with an authentic account of a life lived at sea; a true and spirited account of a phase of sea-life now long past, fascinating from the very vividness and sincerity of its telling. Retold with the lucidity and fondness that can only belong to one who has lived it and loved it, A Gipsy of the Horn – Life in a Deep-Sea Sailing Ship is highly recommended for readers with an interest in the history and development of sailing. With beautiful pen and ink drawings by N.A.D. Wallis.
