The eNotated Sailing Alone Around the World Overview
Though most eBooks are simple conversions of paper books, the "eNotated Sailing Alone" is a completely new approach that takes advantage of the potential eBook technology offers to extend and enrich Slocum’s writing in a way that’s convenient to use while still unobtrusive to the reader.
Based on the 1901 edition of "Sailing Alone Around the World" and including more than 60 original illustrations, this eNotated edition extends Slocum’s writing by providing a new layer of information behind the text the reader can access before, during, and after each chapter.
For instance, in Chapter 15, when Slocum writes, “Taking things by and large as sailors say…,” Thomerson’s eNotation tells us Slocum means “Overall, or in most cases” and that “Sailing ‘by’ means toward the wind, sailing ‘large’ means away from the wind. Hence ‘by and large’ encompasses most of the possible options and implies ‘most of the time’”.
Joshua Slocum was the first person to sail solo around the world and his account of the voyage is adventure writing at its best - but his colorful story telling is filled with 19th century sailing terms, geographical references, and idioms that may be lost to the modern reader. Chris Thomerson, a lifelong sailor and student of maritime history, provides the background and explanations readers need to thoroughly understand, appreciate, and enjoy Slocum’s classic by adding hundreds of electronic annotations linked to words and phrases in Slocum’s original text.
If you are going to read Slocum for the first time - or reread him after some years - you will best enjoy and most throughly understand him with this unique eNotated edition.

Before I read The eNotated Sailing Alone Around the World, I had read some reviews which had me wondering if this one would be something I'd like, reviews from people whose opinions I trust. It's True, so The eNotated Sailing Alone Around the World stayed on my "TBR Someday".
