Blue Horizons: Dispatches from Distant Seas

Blue Horizons: Dispatches from Distant SeasSail to the ends of the earth and back again without leaving your favorite reading chair

When Beth Leonard and her partner, Evans Starzinger, returned from a three-year, 35,000 mile circumnavigation, they thought they were done with offshore voyaging. But neither realized how irrevocably they had been changed by their experience, nor how irresistible the siren song of the sea would prove. In comparison, life ashore seemed dull and monochrome, and within months, Beth knew she had to go back to sea in order to remain true to the person she had become.  more...

51X4gV9QiLLOver the summer I read a couple of sailing-related novels Sail by James Patterson (& Howard Roughan) and Whiskey Gulf by Clyde Ford. I am an avid reader of books on sailing with bookshelf chock full of the damned things (and the spines are broken on all of them in case you are wondering if I have read any of them).

Ninety Years Crossing Lake Michigan: The History of the Ann Arbor Car Ferries

  #
Ninety Years Crossing Lake Michigan: The History of the Ann Arbor Car Ferries

In 1892, the Ann Arbor Car Ferries shook the transportation world by doing what was then deemed impossible---carrying loaded railroad cars by ship across the sixty-two miles of open water between Frankfort, Michigan and Kewaunee, Wisconsin. With passion, acuity, and remarkable detail, Grant Brown describes the nearly 100-year crossings---from their beginnings with James Ashley's bold new idea of car ferrying down to the last fight for survival until the Michigan Interstate Rail Company finally closed in 1982.

Honey, Let's Get a Boat... A Cruising Adventure of America's Great Loop

  #

Honey, Let's Get a Boat... A Cruising Adventure of America's Great Loop

This is the story of a couple's travels on a forty-foot trawler cruising 6300 miles and 145 locks around the eastern part of North America known as America's Great Loop or the Great Circle Cruise.

Their nautical ineptitude is evident from the beginning, but pulling from their personal and collective strengths, the authors overcome doubt, a lack of experience, and real and imagined horrors. The odyssey is told the way life hands out its adventures -- sometimes humorously, sometimes tragically, but always memorably.

The writing is light and appealing, but there is a serious strain running through the book for those who relish history and descriptions of the landscape. Astute and attentive to detail, they chronicled events and kept an account of expenses, equipment and charting. More...
