The Book | Charles Wilkins
It was to be an expedition like no other a run across the Atlantic from Morocco to Barbados aboard an experimental rowboat. There would be no support vessel, no stored water, no sails or motor. The boat’s crew of sixteen included several veterans of U.S. college rowing, a pair of triathletes, and a woman who had rowed both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Is a rich, funny, and fascinating story about the importance of our connections to each other and to the planet, and the rewards of risk in our lives.
Reviews | Charles Wilkins
8220;Rarely have I been so drop-jaw riveted by a book, so won over by a writer’s chops and heart, so happy to be dry.”. Mary Roach, bestselling author of Stiff and Gulp. In the Land of Long Fingernails. A gem an irreverent, twisted and occasionally revolting corker, populated by a wildly entertaining workforce It’s the humanity at the core of the book plus Wilkins’ gymnastic prose and laughs aplenty that really powers this book. Literary Review of Canada. Mary Roach, Globe and Mail. Walk to New York.
