Detailed Product Description
New York, 1991, 1st edition. 303 pages, maps. Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

The one-legged Welsh explorer considered one of the finest marine adventure writers of our time tackles the infamous Kra peninsula of Thailand and in the process dispels the myths and misconceptions about the physically disabled.

An inspiring exploit from a master storyteller of his passage through the Kra Peninsula, which divides the Andaman Sea from the Gulf of Thailand, accompanied by his German mate and three disabled Thais.

Arthur Jones, pen name Tristan Jones (8 May 1929 21 June 1995) was a British mariner and author. He spent most of his life at sea, first in the British Royal Navy, and then sailing in small yachts for various purposes, including self-appointed adventure trips. Starting in 1977, he wrote sixteen books and many articles about sailing and his adventures, including several memoirs. At one point he bought a sailboat, tried whiskey smuggling, and scraped a living sailing the Mediterranean Sea. 

While his account of war service is entertaining, Jones has been compared to a 'rum gagger' (19th century British slang for a man who got money or drinks by telling fraudulent tales of supposed suffering at sea). His left leg was amputated in 1982, due to health problems and accidents.  In 1991, he also lost his right leg, and became depressed, although he returned briefly to sea.

His writing, while highly entertaining, often mixes fact and fiction. In his memoirs, he invented a fictional childhood and youth.
