Product description

About the Author

Emmy Award-winning Steve Thomas is the host of Renovation Nation on Discovery’s Planet Green. Before that he hosted This Old House, for 14 years. Beginning in 1977, Steve logged many blue-water miles sailing a 43-foot wooden sloop from England to San Francisco via the Panama Canal, Galapagos, Marquesas and Hawaii. In the early 1980s, he journeyed to the remote Micronesian island of Satawal to learn the ancient technique of star path navigation under the master navigator Mau Piailug. Steve's research resulted in this book, The Last Navigator, published in 1987 and a documentary for PBS’s Adventure series. Steve received his bachelor's degree in philosophy from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Steve has renovated a number of old houses, including the 1836 Colonial revival in which he currently resides with his wife and son in a seaport town north of Boston.
