in 1849, Joshua Slocum dreamed of becoming a sailor. His father wanted
him to work in the boot shop with him but Joshua couldn't bear the thought
of spending the rest of his life just looking at the sea. So, he
ran away and joined the crew of a ship. As the years went by, Joshua
learned more and more about sailing and he eventually became captain of
a ship. Join Joshua and his family on their voyages in Born in
Slocum, Joshua, b. 1844.
