Tim Severin, The Sinbad Voyage
CONDITION: Very Good
DESCRIPTION: In 1980, four years after his Brendan Voyage, Tim Severin set out to test another legend. With a crew which included eight Omani seamen, and a ship made from Malabar timbers held together with coconut rope and painted with fish oil and sugar, he aimed to recreate the Seven Voyages of Sindbad, from Oman to China, and to find out whatever truth there may have been in the mythical tales of the "Arabian Nights". This is Severin's account of the adventure.
