Spindrift : A Wilderness Pilgrimage at Sea, Hardback Book

Spindrift : A Wilderness Pilgrimage at Sea Hardback

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.
