LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Weidenfeld & Nicolson: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2004. A fabulous blend of travel history and adventure wound around the author's own voyage round Cape Horn<p> With the heart of a sailor and the narrative skill of a novelist, Dallas Murphy explores the enduring allure of the mythic Cape Horn. Located at the southernmost tip of the Andes, Cape Horn is a place where the storms are bigger, the winds stronger, the geography more dangerous for a seafarer than anywhere else in the world. From when it was named in 1611 until the present day, Cape Horn has had a rich history filled not only with the horrors of sailing disasters but also with the pleasures of Darwinian research into flora and fauna. The author uses his own voyage around Cape Horn to weave together the history of explorations, along with tales of Indians who lived there, the oceanography and meteorology of the region (with echoes of <i>The Perfect Storm</i>), the science of navigation and the natural history of the area. The result is the story of a sailor testing his own limits as well as a truly captivating depiction of one of the most unusual areas on earth.<p><p>. Hardback. New.
