This review is from: The Eight Sailing/Mountain-Exploration Books (Mischief in Patagonia/Mischief Among the Penguins/Mischief in Greenland/Mostly Mischief/Mischief Goes ... With Everything/Triumph and Tribulation) (Hardcover)
Tilman demonstrated thet it was and is still possible to find real challenges in our times. Sailing old and small craft to some of the most remote and still wild places on earth, he in some ways, went to re-create the journeys of adventurers in centuries before. This book is filled with wonderful tales of discovery, hardship and triumph in his quest. In some ways Tilman was driven to the wilder places on earth, but that drive lives in the heart of many of us, in this age he, however, had the courage to do it. A truly good read for anyone with a hint of the outdoors in their soul.
