"Well known as one of the finest sailing adventure writers of our time, Tristan Jones is in peak form in 'Somewheres East of Suez'. [...] In 'Somwheres East of Suez', Tristan makes his way from the tourist- andterrorist-dominated ports on the eastern Mediterranean to African outposts peopled with famine refugees and barely escapes with his life in South Yem en before he sets off for the Far East. While he has largely won out against the difficulties of his handicap, the environment deals him an unusual number of challenges to overcome along his way. Whether caught in the midst of a tropical cyclone or savoring his dwindling ration of resh water in the vast windless expanse of the Indian Ocean, he is a master at conveying the excitement and continual call of the sailing life." - from the dustjacket.
