Sextant: A Young Man’s Daring Sea Voyage

by Barrie, David

CAD $18.50

The author’s interest in the sextant was piqued early, when he watched "Mutiny on the Bounty". At 19, he learned to use a sextant on a transatlantic passage aboard a 35-foot sailboat. In this compelling and dramatic tale–part voyage narrative, part science text–Barrie charts both the voyage and the sextant’s development and critical role in mapping the globe.
