What were the life experiences that forged Ernle Bradford\'s from a conventional job-holder to a traveler, adventurer and the author of numerous bestsellers about some of the greatest heroes in history including Julius Caesar, Admiral Horatio Nelson and Sir Francis Drake? It started with a quote that Bradford and his wife took very much to heart: \"Life does not come again; if you have not lived during the days that were given to you, once only, then write it down as lost...\" It was those profound words of Anton Chekhov that convinced Bradford and his wife to quit their jobs, sell their home and sail off to France in The Mother Goose, a ten-ton Dutch cutter. THE JOURNEYING MOON chronicles their adventures as they travel through Europe and the Mediterranean. From the people of Malta who were convinced Bradford was a spy from MI5 to his interactions with the Sicilian Mafia, Bradford tells the charming and vivid tale of his days as a true adventurer. And his sojourn to Malta inspired the bestselling THE GREAT SIEGE, the story of one of the greatest military actions in history. [via]
