In 1934, 23-year-old Richard Maury set sail from New York Harbor in Cimba, a 35-foot Nova Scotia schooner, bound for Fiji. The Saga of Cimba, out of print for nearly three decades, tells the unforgettable story of Maury's voyage. Often compared to the works of Antoine de Saint Exupery and Joseph Conrad, Richard Maury's account is an extraordinary tale of high adventure, acclaimed for its exquisite depictions of the sea's almost unbearable beauty and annihilating fury. Maury and his crew managed to survive first one, then another, major storm in the Atlantic before losing the Cimba on a South Pacific reef. The Sailor's Classics edition features a new introduction by award-winning author Jonathan Raban, exploring the history and condition of small-boat voyaging in the 1930s and the significance of this book in the literature of the sea.
