"Beginning their journey in Japan [aboard the Tzu Hang], the Smeetons travelled along the coastling before wintering amongst the snow-covered mountains on the northernmost island of Hokkaido. From there they sailed to the Aleutians, those little known-islands, so often lost in fog, which form a bridge between Asia and America. [... From there,] their journey took them toAlaska, British Columbia and down the west coast of America; then through the Panama Canal to Jamaica, north to Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Iceland. The final leg of this epic voyage carried them across the North Atlantic via the Faroes to a landfall on the Hebrides." Faint brown stain to bottom edge, else very good. 12.00
