This marvelous story, about a British sailor shipwrecked off Cape May in the 17th century, was rediscovered after lying in a closet for around 60 years. Famous Philadelphia publisher J. B. Lippincott wanted to publish the book in the 1940s but the author, a blue-collar carpenter called Charles Whitecar Miskelly, wouldn't let them change a word. You can read the fascinating backstory in Jack Wright's foreword. Charles' grandson brought the manuscript to Exit Zero, and we are delighted and proud to release this fine book, 50 years after Charles' death.
