Overview

The China Voyage: Across the Pacific by Bamboo Raft by Tim Severin

The extraordinary story of how Severin & his crew made maritime history by sailing across the Pacific Ocean on a bamboo raft. Their purpose: to test the theory that Asian mariners reached Amer. some 2,000 years ago. Their experience provides armchair explorers with one of the most remarkable sea voyages ever, & offers a unique perspective on what happens when historical theories are literally put to the test. Selecting bamboo in a Vietnamese jungle & rigging sails, the excitement of catching an enormous fish & the disappointment of finding its inedible — these are just a few of the memorable scenes in his account of this arduous journey. Illus.
