Daniel is wry, comic, and down-to-earth. David, his father, is romantic, excitable, and reflective. Together their voices weave a story of travel, of adventure, of difficult, dangerous sailing, as they embark on a treacherous and enlightening journey to the bottom of the world and back. Maps. Diagrams.
A story of adventure on a small boat, for fathers, for sons, and for those who love them. On this voyage the father relinquishes control, the son becomes the captain, and before long they are utterly alone, with only the huge waves of Cape Horn, a compass, a sextant, a pet cat, and the tiny boat they've built together. "The account of the passage, related in alternating sections by father and son, will be read with delight 100 years from now."--William F. Buckley, The New York Times Book Review, front page; "A must read for sailors of the sea and of the heart."--Eco Traveler. Over three months as a New York Times Bestseller. A Literary Guild and a Nautical Book Club selection.
