Student Narrative

My book is based on Joshua Slocum, who is the first person to circumnavigate the world solo from 1895-1898. He is known as one of the greatest sailors in history and also had a passion for writing. Through this book I wanted to convey his obsession with the sea, his mental state through out the voyage and give a glimpse of the route of his ship Spray. I also wanted to suggest that Joshua used only a compass and lunar sightings to navigate around the world.
