Great adventure, great life.

This is one of the best creative nonfiction / memoir books I have read in years. Although it is out of print, I recommend getting a used copy. This is an account of Harvey Oxenhorn's self discovery and world discovery. The tall mast ship on which he sailed is a metaphor for life and the importance of relationships. It is an incredible story of how one can learn something totally new that is seemingly disconnected from everyday life yet in reality is intimately connected with the living of life. He learned how to go beyond his comfort zone, face danger and the real prospect of death,the necessity of relying on and trusting others, and a whole host of other things.
And, are you curious what the title, "Tuning the Rig" means? Well, get the book. I don't think you will be disappointed!
