9780465047604: Rounding the Horn: Being the Story of Williwaws and Windjammers, Drake, Darwin, Murdered Missionaries and Naked Natives--a Deck's-eye View of Cape Horn
Review:

"I can't remember the last time I had so much fun reading, curling up comfortably for such an articulate adventure. Murphy's writing is vivid, his tales by turns admiring, irreverent, contemplative."

From the Publisher:

Fifty-five degrees 59 minutes South by 67 degrees 16 minutes West: Cape Horna buttressed pyramid of crumbly rock situated at the very bottom of South Americais a place of forlorn and foreboding beauty that has captured the dark imaginations of explorers and writers from Francis Drake to Joseph Conrad. For centuries, the small stretch of water between Cape Horn and the Antarctic Peninsula was the only gateway between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Its a place where the storms are bigger, the winds stronger, and the seas rougher than anywhere else on earth. Dallas Murphy has always been sea-struck. In Rounding the Horn he undertakes the ultimate maritime rite of passage, and brings the reader along for a thrilling, exuberant tour. Weaving together stories of his own nautical adventures with long-lost tales of those who braved the Cape before himfrom Spanish missionaries to Captain Cookand interspersing them with breathtaking descriptions of the surrounding wilderness, Murphy has crafted an immensely enjoyable read.
