Detailed Product Description

London, 1993. 205 pp, many b/w photos. New paperback.

Newby has led the life most travel writers dream about. At 19 he joined the crew of the Finnish barque Moshulu and sailed in the last Grain Race from Australia around Cape Horn to Europe.

Even in those early days Newby recorded his experiences in black-and-white photographs and a daily log. It was a regimen he followed for 50 years, as his career took him around the globe: Europe in World War II; then India, Israel, Turkey, East Africa, the West Indies, and China as travel editor for the London Observer .

This book represents a photographic memoir that spans much of this century and, in many cases, captures 'a world that has changed beyond all recognition.' There are hints of regret at the engines of progress that have consigned four-masted schooners and Portuguese windmills to antiquity and modernized miles of shoreline with holiday time-shares. New Paperback.
