Book Sponsorship: A Man for All Oceans

$500.00

 Captain Joshua Slocum (1844 - 1909) was the first person to sail alone around the world. More than a century ago in Fairhaven, Mass., he rebuilt an old sloop called the Spray and it was on that vessel that he made history. 

Author Stan Grayson has been researching Slocum’s life for years and has uncovered primary sources that have yielded information to fill significant gaps in our understanding of Slocum’s life and voyages. Grayson also authored A Genius at His Trade: C. Raymond Hunt and His Remarkable Boats in 2015.

The Whaling Museum and Tilbury House Books have partnered to publish A Man for All Oceans. The book will be released in May 2017 and the Museum will mount a companion exhibition on the subject as well.

Help underwrite this book. If you donate at least $500 by February 27th your name will be prominently listed on the benefactor page, you'll receive a slip-covered edition of the book and an invitation to a VIP launch party. Contact Sarah Budlong at sbudlong@whalingmuseum.org or call (508)717-6850.

The jacketed, hardcover book will be 416 pages, including 85 images and maps, and a finish size of 6.5 inches x 9.5 inches.
