5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book will make you long to go cruising! 7 février 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is special to me as it opened my eyes to the reality that anyone with a true desire to see the world can make it a reality. It sparked in me a desire to 'go cruising' which I will be doing this summer when I leave on a trip to circumnavigate the world by sailboat. I was inspired by Harry Pigeons' account of his voyage aboard the 'Islander', and I think you will be too.

Harry Pidgeon, a farm boy from Iowa did not even see the sea until he was eighteen but by then he had "mucked about" a bit in boats as do most lads and after a spell in Alaska, he decided to build one of the famous Rudder Magazines 'Islander' sloops. Having completed his thirty four foot wooden sailing boat, single-handed, without "too much trouble" he said, he launched and sailed it - single-handed - to Hawaii.

He accepted a crew for the return, who joined with a brand new guitar. He was, he said, going to learn how to play it, during his "spare time" on the voyage. Harry concluded that this crew-hand somewhat lacked experience of sailing a sloop across an ocean. "However, we got on well enough". Reading this book it is difficult to imagine anyone not being able to `get along; with the calm, competent harry Pigeon.

Joshua Slocomb had only completed the first single-handed some thirty years before in his famous sloop `Spray'who was just three feet longer that the "Islander", but Slocomb had more thirty years sea-going experience behind him. With boundless confidence and, perhaps wisely, single-handed again, harry decided to sail across the Pacific (and never was an Ocean more misnamed) to see `the islands' and, like Slocomb, "kinda, sorta" forgot to stop.

Written in a rather dry, straightforward and chronological manner Pidgeon's tale lacks that marvelous prose that the relatively unlettered Slocomb astoundingly produced in his account. But arm-chair sailors and old reminiscers like me will still enjoy reading these travels and the marvelous islands, peoples, trails and the ultimate success of Harry Pidgeon's circumnavigation around the world. And, unlike Josh Slocomb he did not get corrected by President Kruger who had insisted that Slocomb had misspoke - he meant, Kruger insisted, across the world - it was, after all, said the President of the South African Boer Nation, flat.

Harry would have agreed with Slocomb.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting, quick read 29 mai 2001

While Harry Pidgeon's feat of sailing around the world is exceptional, and his writing style clear and concise, he offers few insights into sailing or his life. The book is fashioned after Joshua Slocum's "Sailing Alone Around The World:" Or equally as likely, Pidgeon and Slocum were two men of a like mind. In any event, both men portray that 19th century reserve so characteristic of the Englishmen. Such reserve in the face of near scrapes with death maybe admirable, but it does not make for as interesting reading.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Around the world single minded 19 janvier 2012
Par Luca57 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
No fantastic adventure, no , no fight with aggressive natives: just a plain yet fascinating description of a great adventure. A very enterprising man decides to explore that (large) part of the globe he does not yet know: ninety years ago it was still possible.
Through his simple and rugged vessel the author can reach persons and human groups who often are minorities and sometimes disappearing.
I was touched from the attitude of this unassuming man, who likes to really get in touch with human beings so different from his neighbors; he is not an ambassador of western culture, but a curious man who want to explore clean waters and unspoiled lands as well as to communicate as far as possible with persons who have a different perspective of life.
I like this book a lot.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fine example of a true sailor of old world character and skill 8 mai 2012
Par Philip Gregory - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
Harry Pidgeon is one the men, like Joshua Slocum, who carried on as men, but with dignity and good character. And, skills and confidence to build their own boats and trust their lives to it (and in Captain Slocum's case, family).

It would be good if more would request the hard-bound versions to promote the book in that traditional form. To be read as it was written, with deliberateness and respect.
