Sailing Bear Cub: While Navigating the Ebb & Flow of Life (Hardcover)
Using offshore sailing as an analogy to sailing ones' own life, the author reflects back on her life-long affiliation with water and boats and how they are intertwined with relationships in her life. From one woman's perspective, this memoir describes how a family built a sailboat, cut society's comfort cord and began a five-year sailing adventure to the South Pacific. This memoir is an excellent read for sailing "doers, doners, and dreamers". It is full of adventure, and humor. The author was able to glean an awareness and insight into many cultures in Oceania and shares descriptive experiences with people she encountered. It is a glimpse of off the beaten track places. The author describes an extraordinary life that most people can't even fathom, as well as lessons she learned and how she coped while the winds of life were filling her sails.
