Sailing Alone Around the World:

Buy it. A Charmingly narrated tale of the first solo round the world sailing trip. A Unique Book.

Voyage of the Liberdade:

A Lesser work, but a pleasant way to pass time, nicely bundled here with with 'Sailing Alone...' The tone feels similar, Slocum was never happy with this his earlier work, and rewrote it several times.

My Collier edition also has excellent introductions and other material which are a further bonus ( )

Sailing alone around the world.
To get underweigh: It was on the 28th of February, 1886, that the bark Aquidneck, laden with case-oil, sailed from New York to Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, the strip of land bounding the River Plate on the east, and called by the natives "Banda Oriental."
