Description Coverage Areas Extended Information
 
Gregory Newell Smith is a truly gifted observer and storyteller. In this collection of seventeen narrative essays, Smith draws upon his years of ocean sailing to explore the importance of broadening our horizons beyond the known and commonplace, freeing ourselves from cultural self-centeredness, and achieving self-discovery through perseverance, hardship and solitude. The individual pieces range from light and humorous, as the naive sailor attempts to make sense of the world’s unfamiliar places and peoples, to sober and reflective, as encountering harsh realities becomes unavoidable. And because there is inherent danger in facing the sea, the account even includes a brush with death.
