Product Description

When prize-winning author Frank Mulville set out for Argentina aboard his classic gaff cutter Iskra the journey was to re-awaken memories of an unconventional childhood - running wild on the pampas and wartime adventures as thrilling as any novel.

By steam, the old Celtic Stay made her traumatic voyages through the worst of the submarine attacks. In the end she was torpedoed and the author rescued from a lifeboat.

By sail, he retraces the route of previous voyages aboard Iskra, often with exciting and unexpected consequences.

The narrative skilfully interweaves unique biographical insight with a vivid description of countries and peoples encountered along his journey to Argentina.

'... Mulville shines out like a lighthouse. He is able to raise nautical writing to the realms of literature.'
- Practical Boat Owner 'To become a stowaway on Iskra. just start reading ...'
- Yachting Monthly
