A tall ship is trapped on a sandbar in 1885, broadsided by heavy seas and doomed to destruction and break up on a lonely Brazilian beach. This just the beginning of an incredible sea adventure by a North American Sea Captain, his wife and two sons.

This recording includes two additional true adventures written by Captain Slocum: “Rescue of some Gilbert Islanders” and “The Voyage of the ‘Destroyer’ From New York to Brazil.
