Acclaimed adventure writer and explorer Tim Severin has made a career of retracing the journeys of literary or historical figures in replica vessels. These experiences have been turned into a body of captivating and illuminating books, including The Brendan Voyage, In Search of Genghis Kahn, and In Search of Moby Dick. Severin has received numerous awards for exploration and geographic history, including the Founder's Medal of England's Geographic Society. When not traveling, he lives in County Cork, Ireland.
"It's hard to say which is more interesting--the history Severin so capably writes or his own adventures in the odd, forlorn places his research takes him to. He knows how to blend his ingredients to generate the kind of heat a reader wants from a book." "Blending travel narrative, maritime history, and a literary mystery, [Severin] pores over the exploits of eighteenth-century pirates, deftly pieces together clues...and has a few adventures of his own. A fascinating read."
