The Old Man and the Sea

Book - 2015
Rate this:
Octogenarian Anthony Smith's journey was originally inspired by both the Kontiki Expedition of Thor Heyerdahl (who he knew) and the incredible story of the survivors of a 1940 boat disaster, who spent 70 days adrift in the Atlantic, eventually reaching land emaciated and close to death. While this might sound like a voyage no-one would wish to emulate, to 'old man' Anthony Smith it sounded like an adventure. In his inimitable style, Smith details his voyage - and the hardships he endured - with a matter-of-fact air that makes his story seem all the more impressive.
