Summary

Summary

In this charming, thought-provoking sequel to Blown Away, Herb Payson's singular determination and self-effacing humor are irresistible as he and his family make a Pacific Ocean passage in an old wooden sailboat.


Author Notes

Until he sailed off to the South Pacific in 1973, Herb Payson was a jazz pianist on the Los Angeles nightclub circuit. He is the author of Blown Away and Advice to the Sealorn, and he and his wife Nancy--well-known habitues of the many ports of call between California and New Zealand--have been regular contributors to SAIL magazine for 25 years.
