Sailing in Circles, Goin’ Somewhere
by Martin, Finley
Not all dreams have happy endings. This is the funny and bittersweet memoir of a Prince Edward Island man who built a classic 1930s wooden sailboat and set out to circumnavigate eastern North America. Sailing alone, he encountered heavy fog, survived near-misses with freighters, dealt with mechanical breakdowns, enormous seas, and other brushes with disaster–until it all came to an inglorious and mundane end in Peoria, Illinois.
