What were the life experiences that turned Bradford from a conventional job holder into a traveler and adventurer? 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. Ernle Bradford was born in 1922 and died in 1986. He was a noted British historian specializing in the Mediterranean world and naval topics. Bradford was an enthusiastic sailor himself and spent almost thirty years sailing the Mediterranean, where many of his books are set. He served in the Royal Navy during World War II, finishing as the first lieutenant of a destroyer. Bradford lived in Malta for a number of years. He did occasional broadcast work for the BBC, was a magazine editor, and wrote many books, including Hannibal, Paul the Traveller, Julius Caesar: The Pursuit of Power, Christopher Columbus, and The Mighty Hood.
