Description

This is the story of a sailing odyssey, but also of an inward journey into deep truths about who we are and how we belong in the universal scheme. A meditation on sailing and life, it is a hugely enjoyable and thought-provoking book for landlubbers, sailors, philosophers and naturalists alike.

Mostly sailing alone, Peter Reason invites us to share in the minute-by-minute challenges of seamanship and navigation, on his journey in his yacht Coral from Plymouth across the Celtic Sea and back again.

Exploring far more than the seaways, the author successfully manages to tell the story of a journey with another dimension - that of investigating and reflecting on our human place in the ecology of the planet. Above all, this book shows us that Nature is not just a place to visit, but our home.

- Sharon Blackie, Editor, EarthLines Magazine

'A truly great reading experience that drew me out of myself into the turning world of the oceans and into the depths of ecological awareness.'
- Stephan Harding, resident ecologist, Schumacher College

'An enthralling sea journey which is thoughtful, courageous and unforgettably human. I was absorbed from the very first page.'
- Miriam Darlington, author of Otter Country, published by Granta
