From the cover: “Francis Chichester’s object in this book is to take the reader stage by stage along the great clipper way followed by the gold, wool and grain clippers from Britain round the Cape (of Good Hope) to Australia and then on round Cape Horn back to Britain. Every mile of this 28,500 mile long route round the world has given pleasure, pain or drama to thousands of sailors. Francis Chichester has collected what he thinks are the best accounts by seamen and the most artistic descriptive passages of famous authors who have written about one section or another of this great route.”
