From Library Journal:
On September 17, 1994, Clayton, an Englishwoman, set sail from Dartmouth, England, to circle the world nonstop and alone. After 31,000 miles and 285 days, she became the first woman to accomplish this feat. Clayton had been inspired by other solo circumnavigators, such as Joshua Slocum, who made the first recorded journey in 1898. Her trip aboard the 38' steel-hulled Spirit of Birmingham proved as unpredictable as the seas she traveled. Although the book is unevenly written, the drama and adventure of her journey remains engaging to the last page, and readers will find special interest in her daily log and the FAXes she exchanged with her friend and mentor Peter Harding?which stopped after her computer crashed permanently on day 214. Maps of Clayton's route and 38 color photographs are included. Recommended for public libraries with sailing or adventure collections.?Janet Ross, Sparks Branch Lib., NV
