Product Description

From the Inside Flap

"Another such wave could easily be the end of us. I had to do something, fix something, save the boat, save myself.
But what?
Gary Paulsen takes readers along on his maiden voyage, proving that ignorance can be bliss. Also really stupid and incredibly dangerous. He tells of boats that have owned him--good, bad, and beloved--and how they got him through terrifying storms that he survived by sheer luck. His spare prose conjures up shark surprises and killer waves as well as moonlight on the sea, and makes readers feel what it's like to sail under the stars or to lie at anchor in a tropical lagoon where dolphins leap, bathed in silver. Falling in love with the ocean set Gary Paulsen on a lifelong learning curve and readers will understand why his passion has lasted to this day.

Format: Hardcover
I first saw this book on Amazon ages ago with others and I finally bought it and read it. I thought it would be longer and the main character, though determined, sure took some chances. It made me want to read more and I went looking for sea travel books and I have enjoyed the all because of this book which stirred my interest. Try it for yourself.
