South Sea Vagabonds - J.W. Wray


75th Anniversary ED.

Johnny Wrays gripping and often hilarious account of his adventures around the South Pacific has inspired readers and changes lives since its first publication 75 years ago.

Fired from his day job during the Great Depression, Johnny begged, borrowed and stole the materials to build his famous yacht NGATAKI.

With some mates for company and sextant to steer by, he set sail for the palm-fringed atolls and islands of his dreams - to discover they really did exist.

South Sea Vagabonds is much more than just a ripping yarn; it is a heartfelt hymn to the possibility of living a free life and truly being the master of one's own destiny.
