Format: Paperback
Wanderer is a wonderful journey back in time for any lover of ships that has come of age since the end of the great age of sail. Hayden puts his reader in a dory on the Grand Banks, or at the masthead of the Gertrude L. Theabaud during the last of the great schooner races, or at the helm of the Yankee way off in the pacific somwhere between Pitcarin Island and Tahiti. Hayden led the last mutiny of the great age of sail. Against the better judgement of the superior court of the great State of California, he took his four young children, his old windjammer, and a crew of friends and dreamers on a voyage of dicovery. In the end, though this book is about the wind which drives his ship, and the spirt that drives his soul.

Format: Paperback
Despite being marketed as a maritime book, "Wanderer" is as much a description of one man's inner wanderings as it is a travelogue of Hayden's travel to Tahiti.Throughout, Hayden comes off as a resolute man of principle and insight.I have read the book three times and always glean something new from it. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Great true story of a big schooner's voyage from SanFrancisco-Tahiti, leaving the pressures of big city behind and revealing the essence of a by-gone life at sea under sail. Hayden was a master mariner, and this is a must-read for any sailor or captain.

I have read and re-read Wanderer several times, and found each a delight. The autobiographical tales of the author's childhood are depressing and dry reading, but serve to show the soil from which he grew. Wanderer is a good read for anyone who has, or should have, dreamed about sailing their own vessel away to sea to get away from the trials of one's daily life.

I could not stand him as an actor, except for his role in (I think) 'The Godfather'. However, I found this autobiographical book to be quite fascinating and well written, too. I own two copies of it, - one an American paperback and one the original hardback publication. I am short for shelf space so the duplication speaks for itself. I bought this copy to give to a neighbour as a present. It is a nicely presented paperback and I am confident it will be well received. Frankly, it was a bit of a wrench parting with it!

the beginning text is a bit fluffy. suspect he had a co-writer. and he keps jumping from present to past which is a little anoying, have to confess that i am a little dissapointed from good beginings . as i am not an avid book reader(life is to short) i expect that i will finish the book in the new year.but hoping for a good outcome.
