Sir Peter Blake was a much loved and greatly admired yachtsman and adventurer, and this book is a wonderful tribute to his achievements.

This large-format hardcover follows the late Sir Peter Blake on his ill-fated final voyage aboard the polar exploration yacht SEAMASTER. As the world knows, Blake was tragically murdered by river pirates in December 2001 while exploring the Amazon. This book tracks that voyage and at the same time pays homage to this extraordinary man. The SEAMASTER voyage began in New Zealand and ascended to 70° S in the icy waters of Antarctica, then headed north to the rain forests of the Amazon. The ship ultimately sailed approximately 1,000 miles up the Amazon river before Blake was murdered on the return journey. The text of the book is drawn from the logbooks kept by Blake and edited by Alan Sefton. The illustrations consist of stunning color images from the ship's photographers, many reproduced in full-page and even two-page format. There are also several paintings by Lady Pippa Blake, who was on board during part of the Amazon exploration. These fabulous pictures display the raw beauty of some of the earth's most remote places and the unique wildlife encountered.

Sir Peter Blake was a great adventurer and seaman. He was part of the team that won the America's Cup in 1995 and lead the defense of the title in 2000 for New Zealand, where he is a national hero.

This book is a celebration of his long and successful career sailing the world. In this last expedition, he goes from Antarctica to the Amazon, going all the way up the Casiquiare, teh legendary canal discovered by Alexander von Humboldt that connects the Negro with the Orinoco rivers. Throughout the books provides a glimpse of local history, with a special emphasis on environmental issues, which were very much on Blake's agenda in this voyage. His journals show a very deep concern for the future of both Antarctica and the Amazon, as tremendously different but similarly delicate regions.

The book is in hard cover format and has lots of pictures taken throughout the trip, which provide the reader with a visula context of the logbook. It is a sad story because it ends up in Peter's demise, attacked by pirates at the mouth of the Amazon, yet it stands as a tribute to a great sportsman and environmental leader.

A must read for any sailor, yachtsman, or anyone interested in exploring the great, almost unknown places to men.
Sir Peter Blake took this journey from New Zealand, to Antarctica, and ending in the Amazon rainforest, where he was fatally shot in December 2001.
The book is full of information and details about the expedition and the trip taken straight from Blake's logbooks, including an array of color photos and drawings to keep the reader entertained. It takes the reader to wild and untamed places, creates a longing to see and explore for themselves, and to be amazed by the wonders in the world.

If you are a sailor, love adventure or in love with the natural world this book is for you. Every picture and thought is original. All crew have a chance to express their views, so it is not just Blake's book. I am just back from visiting the Amazon and I can vouch for the contents of this dairy style observations.
