The whole Narnia series was originally read to me by my mom & dad. They traded off with one another and swept me away to a far away land full of adventure and possibility. ❤️
🏴☠️ This nonfiction book tells of William Dampier, a naturalist who went around the world 3 times. It is shocking he is not more well known considering he discovered and named so many things. It‘s an easy read because it‘s so fascinating.
Although this is part of the Fin McLeod series, he's not really the main character. Instead it's an old man who doesn't recognize his own daughter but can vividly remember many of the details of his rather crappy childhood: clandestine adventures that often led to disaster, a nasty headmaster, a harrowing #voyage to the lower Hebrides...
Luckily, our voyage there was more tranquil, albeit a little gloomy. #letstraveljuly
