Detailed Product Description

London, 1968, 1st edition. 190 pp, photos. The two voyages to the Southern ocean described in this book were not regarded as a success by Tilman. The latter voyage in 1966-7 to the ice-encrusted islands hidden in the tempestuous seas south of Cape Horn, was unhappy and disastrous with the loss overboard of the first mate and constant tension among the crew.

The other voyage included in this volume is a voyage Tilman undertook in Mischief round Africa ten years previously. The author writes in his customary terse and gripping style but says in the preface that for him it was like 'turning a knife in the wound'. 

'The barren, uninhabitable and desert regions of the earth, places which, by their remoteness and the natural dangers with which they have surrounded themselves, have consistently withstood human incursions - such places have always exercised a powerful lure on Major Tilman, veteran mountain-climber and small-boat sailor.  The ice-encrusted islands hidden in the tempestuous seas south of Cape Horn were the goal of the 1966-67 voyage here recounted by the author'.  No inscriptions. No DJ, Fine. No flaws.
