13 The Brendan voyage / Tim Severin ; drawings by Trondur Patursson
New York New York : McGraw-Hill 1978 0070563357 / 9780070563353 Hard Cover Very Good+ in Fair dust jacket Illustrated by Trondur Patursson 
B & W and Color; 7 x 9 1/2; ix, 292 pages; Hard cover is blue with blue cloth spine with silver lettering. Previous owner's name, neatly written, on front end paper. Decorated endpapers. Illustrated with 47 color photographs, a 2 page b/w map of the voyage, and many b/w drawings. Pages are clean and tight. 'Could an Irish monk in the sixth century really have sailed all the way across the Atlantic in a small open boat, thus beating Columbus to the New World by almost a thousand years? Relying on the medieval text of St. Brendan, award-winning adventure writer Tim Severin painstakingly researched and built a boat identical to the leather curragh that carried Brendan on his epic voyage. He found a centuries-old, family-run tannery to prepare the ox hides in the medieval way; he undertook an exhaustive search for skilled harness makers (the only people who would know how to stitch the three-quarter-inch-thick hides together) ; he located one of the last pieces of Irish-grown timber tall enough to make the mainmast. But his courage and resourcefulness were truly tested on the open seas, including one heart-pounding episode when he and his crew repaired a dangerous tear in the leather hull by hanging over the side--their heads sometimes submerged under the freezing waves--to restitch the leather. A modern classic in the tradition of Kon-Tiki, The Brendan Voyage seamlessly blends high adventure and historical relevance'. 3 appendices.
