Navigator In The South Seas - FIRST EDITION

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

A good, clean copy. Hardback. Good condition. Published 1961. Dust jacket intact.

A book by Brett Hilder about his adventures as a navigator along the reef-fringed shores of the south-west Pacific.

Mariners will admire his extraordinary facility in freeing ships locked on hazardous coral reefs, and fellow navigators will warm to his theories on phosphorescence, the use of obscure Gilbertese navigational stones, and Polynesian origins, even in they do not agree with them. Even so, this is a book not solely for experts, but able to hold in its thrall any reader for whom the combination of lucidly presented fact and first-hand description of the South Seas proves irresistible.
