Mary’s Voyage: The Adventures of John and Mary Caldwell
by Douglas, Matthew M. & Mary Caldwell
One of the most successful sailing stories ever written is "Desperate Voyage" by John Caldwell. Now, almost sixty years later, his wife Mary tells her own inspiring story of endurace and fearlessness. Mary and John became the first family to attempt a voyage around the world on a small sailing craft using only a sextant and dead reckoning to guide them across thousands of miles of ocean. Mary was pregnant and already had two children in tow. She gave birth to her son in Tahiti, weathered constant seasickness, and survived frightening storms.
