New York: Doubleday & Company Inc. 1971 (c.1971) Book Club Edition. Thor Heyerdahl crossed the Atlantic in a boat made of papyrus reeds.... not once, but twice.

Description:
New York: Random House, 1987. Photographs by Christopher Little. Racing Through Paradise is the third entry in William Buckley Jr's sailing trilogy. Buckley takes his son, his friends and his readers to another ocean, on a four-thousand-mile run across the Pacific. A journey with Buckley is inevitably an expedition into oddly assorted experiences and comedy, into observation and illumination- into wit and reflection and into friendships that overcome friction. He guides us through his beloved Azores, and through the Galapagos, and through places such as Johnston Atoll, where mysteries and hostilities await. The fine photographs in color and b/w by Christopher Little illustrate throughout. When Buckley's "Sealestial" sails finally into New Guinea, we have shared a unique experience with a special breed of sailor, skipper, host, friend and human being. Prologue, epilogue and index supplied. Scrimshaw oil painting by George Thompson is used to illustrate endpapers. Name to ffep. Small edge… Read more

London: Andre Deutsch, 1984. Charles Gidley entered the Royal Navy in 1954. He served as seaman specialist, pilot and flying instructor in the Fleet Air Arm and from 1968-69 he captained a minesweeper based at Malta. His novel is the story of Steven Jannaway, a naval officer; and simultaneously it is an x-ray picture, sometimes highly disconcerting,of the grand and glorious institution in which he serves. The author has brought his extraordinary gifts as a storyteller and creator of character to bear on an aspect of British life which is almost legendary. The result is a novel as absorbing as it is surprising. Attractive deep blue boards. No ownership markings. A sharp, tight and bright book in a full wrap-around pictorial dust jacket. Jacket illustration by Carol Binch. A very nice copy!. First British Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.

Iron-willed and enduring they are all here in all the glory and anguish of their tumultuous alliances. This then, is one of the most colourful family sagas in Canadian history - the Crosbies of Newfoundland.
