Summary

Summary

When Oliver Allyn was growing up in the midst of Illinois cornfields and backyard hollyhocks, his persistent and incongruous dream was to build and sail his own boat. Eventually, he fulfilled that dream many times and in many ways. but his most rewarding sailing adventure took three years and two boats to sail 52 miles down the Connecticut River. In this charming account of a New England odyssey we share Oliver's childlike joy and sense of accomplishment, mingled with his love of nature and respect for her strength.
