The Incredible Voyage - A Personal Odyssey

by Jones, Tristan

Condition: Very Good/Fair

Bodley Head, 1978. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Fair. The atmospheric and lovely illustration on the dustjacket still glows with vitality and power. The dustjacket itself has very general wear and tear. The corners have shallow wear marks and the spine has shelving wear to the seams and the head and the foot. It is also shelf faded. The cloth cover is very good. So too are the contents. The clean and strong pages are not affected by the shallow storage marks on the paper trims. The pages are healthy and confident and clear and complete. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services.

Follow the supreme adventurer Tristan Jones as he takes a solitary and intrepid six-year voyage on his small craft, The Sea Dart. Covering a distance twice the circumference of the globe, from the lowest body of water in the world--The Dead Sea--to the highest-- Lake Titicaca in the Andes--Jones finds himself "a thousand times beyond the limit of endurance." With tenacity stronger than any obstacle encountered, Jones refuses to give up his adventure, even after falling prey to several disasters that could have killed him. Struggling against the mighty current of the Amazon, hauling his boat over the Andes Mountains and capsizing off the Cape of Good Hope do not discourage him. This gripping story, told by the man who actually experienced it, is a testament to his indomitable spirit and thirst for danger.
