Convergence: A Voyage through French Polynesia
by Rodgers, Sally-Christine
A beautifully illustrated travel narrative. Rodgers thoughtful, often poetic vignettes bring her readers into each scene to fully experience life under sail. Reflecting on her father’s stories of his South Sea travels in the 1930s, Rodgers highlights the history and culture of the islands— that which has changed and what remains the same. Her prose, come straight from the heart, vividly evoking her adventure, while underscoring the realities, challenges,—and humor,—of long distance cruising. Along the way Rodgers’ vibrant photographs record the fast-changing natural world of the South Pacific and its ever-evolving culture.
