Captain Rowland's scenes ondeck, especially in heavy weather, are exquisitely rendered and give a keen sense of the power, beauty, and dangers of the sea. But what'smost compelling about this riveting sea memoir are the sailors aboard Endymion, especially Captain Rowland.Their fateful voyage repeatedly tests them, both physically and emotionally.Courage, love, faith, bravado, and endurance are all in thiscompelling tale about the value--and cost--of dreams and livingthem out despite the risks.
--Tom Peek, author of the award-winning Hawaii novel Daughters of Fire
A story which is never less than engaging, exciting and intriguing. A great read for both the experienced yachtsman and dreamers alike.Philip Matyszak, Author of "The Gold of Tolosa" and other adventure books
From the Author
The power, beauty and dangers of the sea, and the world in general changed me after voyaging for seven years, and it's all good. I didn't cast off expecting life threatening situations, but these were the days before GPS, cel phones,and powerful location beacons. I was often tested emotionally as well as for for courage, endurance and faith. Most sailing was the dream of millions, to escape the drudgery of daily living and increasing rage created by jealousy and greed.

I am an experienced offshore sailor and have sailed many miles racing to a destination. My cruising was short hops sailing the Windward and Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles over several vacations.
None compare to crossing the Pacific and Island hopping where islands are 600 miles apart with a very small pick-up crew. The culture of the islands and the personalities of the people aboard, under good and bad conditions, help animate the book, as well as the outgoing personality of Captain Rowland. It was near miss after near miss with Lady Luck playing a big part.
I recommend this book to anyone wanting to live an adventure without risking their lives in the process.
A Great Read – I am now waiting for his next book as the adventure continues.
