This is a great story not only for its historical significance but also for the quality of writing and the fantastic job done by the narrator. I have just listened to it once and can't wait to listen to it again! We love sailing stories and have our own podcast at The Sailing Podcast where we have also left a review there. Come and join Carina and I on our journey...
This series gives both a great perspective on the history of 'The Great Explorers' as well as an insight into the lifestyle of the early sailors. Prof. Williams is an authority in this field of history.
This is a great starting point if you would like to refresh your memory on the journeys of these famous explorers and from here you can search through Audible for other great books that detail these sailors lives in more detail.
I am surprised that Audible has not made more of his books available in Audio format - a particular favorite of mine is "Voyages of Delusion: The Quest for The North West Passage"
The Modern Scholar 'lecture' style of presentation allows you to fit a single lesson into your schedule, be it exercise, commuting, falling asleep etc.
