Joshua Slocum is widely known for his Sailing Around the World Alone, the story of his solo circumnavigation. The Voyage of the Liberdade, his first book, is equally compelling. In it he recounts his journey to Brazil and back - he sailed down on the Aquidneck, his own ship, and returned on the Liberdade, which he built there. What happened? Slocum describes sailing from port to port in Brazil, trying to take in and deliver enough cargo on the Aquidneck to make her voyage profitable. Through a series of mishaps he is saddled with a crew which turns out to be composed of brigands, not sailors

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Slocum writes an engaging tale of a commercial voyage to Brazil that he made, as captain,with his wife and two children. You know from the beginning that the story does not end too badly because the main character (Slocum) lives to tell it. But, there are storms and shipwrecks, fevers and quarantines, mutinous crews and pettish port authorities, not too mention, a revolution Thorough it all, Slocum makes things go right. There are wonderful vignettes involving people they met along the way as well as pleasant descriptions of the ports at which they stopped. In the end, their young son hops from their "canoe," the Liberdade, to the pier in the Potomac Basin in Washington DC--the end of their voyage.

I read both this book and his journey single-handed around the world. Amazing! The guy is a top notch seaman and handyman it seems; he also kills 2 men on this book. Lol. Even though he was an avid sailor, I found it curious that he did NOT know how to swim...attributed partly in this book by fear of sharks. I mean, really??? I love the writing style and annotations; full of insight for those new to sailing. I only dream one day to be able to sail off and explore the world. My sea skills somewhat lacking BUT knowing how to swim well, I recommend this book for those looking for a dose of adventure from their comfy living room. :)

Starting in 1944 I WAS a sailor! I read Joshua Slocum's "Sailing Alone Around the World."
For more than 20 years I was a professional sailing vessel captain, a very early member of the Virgin Island Yacht fleet. For a short time a fellow Captain in our group was Joshua's granddaughter Kitty Slocum. Imbued with a little of the family history, when I found Voyage of the Liberdade I HAD to read it. The language is archaic though thoroughly enjoyable. The story? I wish I could have been with them.

I love Slocum! Of course I'd read his famous book about sailing alone around the world, and then discovered this book. What a great read! And I think it was best to read this one second.

One of the best. This man wrote a book about sailing around the world alone and on his voyage read Robert Louis Stevenson. This is truly a story about bouncing back from an "L". Inspiring and well written.

Shipwrecked in Brazil, Joshua Slocum builds a boat that gets him and his family back to the US.
This is before he sails around the world, alone, in a small boat; thei first man to do so.

No sniveling, whining,more complaining from this hearty sailor. Just hunker down and get the job done seeing the best and laughing at the worst. Every man who has ever served in our military in wartime would feel comfortable sharing a foxhole with this guy. He would make a heavy pack seem light and show you how to laugh at the weather.

Good read, good guy, good experience.
Thoughtful reading for someone who is interested in sailing for the first time and gives some forethought to what could happen on the open sea
