Sailing Alone Around The World is a must read.

Penguin’s description is apt: First published in 1900, Joshua Slocum’s autobiographical account of his solo trip around the world is one of the most remarkable and entertaining travel narratives of all time. Slocum set off alone from Boston in April 1895 and went on to join the ranks of the world’s great circumnavigators. But by circling the globe without crew or consorts, Slocum outdid them all. His three-year solo voyage of more than 46,000 miles remains unmatched in maritime history of courage, skill, and determination.
