My first complete solo audiobook is now online and free for anyone to download at Librivox. The Track of the Typhoon was a book I read in serialized form several years ago, in the delightful zine Messing About in Boats. It’s a travelogue from a slightly insane sailing voyage in 1920, written by the aptly named chief instigator, William Washburn Nutting. Nutting was the editor of Motor Boating magazine at the time, but he was a sailor at heart. It features appearances by a couple of boating-famous folks.
If you’re not a boat geek this might be a tough ride, as Nutting includes some long and often somewhat dull excerpts from the logbook in several chapters, but the main story is quite entertaining and well-written. Enjoy!
