"After a German submarine sinks the merchant barkentine Angelus, her ten crew are left to face the cold and merciless North Atlantic in a small open lifeboat without food or water. Over the next ten horrifying days, 24-year-old Walter Boudreau witnesses the death of all but oneof his shipmates. Miraculously, Boudreau survives. Just as incredible, thi s agonizing introduction to life before the mast does nothing to cool his passion for sailing. Over the next four decades, Captain Boudreau's love affair with the sea aboard his various classic schooners takes him through nautical adventures both thrilling and extraordinary. This books plots an exciting voyage from a shipwreck in the far north and the dramatic rescue of a stranded U.S. naval vessel, to an eerie encounter with a tiger shark. We witness the terror of confronting a 65-foot rogue wave, a fight with drug pirates in the Bahamas, and the onslaught of a vicious hurricane. Journing from Canada's East Coast to the Caribbean islands, across the raging Atlantic and, finally, home to Canada, the trials and tribulations of a life at sea -- including the tragic loss of several of Boudreau's beloved schooners -- are tempered by the wonderful adventures of life under sail." - from the rear cover.

We would read together Cherry-Garrard's The WorstJourney in the World. At once we were transported down to the Antarctic wi th Scott on his last expedition. There we were in a tent, a blizzard howling around us, the temperature fifty degrees below zero, nothing to eat but alittle dog-meat, and the paraffin in our Primus stove running low - separa ted from home and civilization by hundreds of miles of dead, barren ice andsnow. From our tent down in the Antarctic we could see things like banks a nd debts and so on in their true perspective. If any reader has worries I recommend that he get a copy of Cherry-Garrard's book, if he can find one. Our copy is dog-eared and worn." p.101. (See also 126 & 127). Name, else vg.25.00
