Swell: A Sailing Surfer's Voyage of Awakening
Written by Liz Clark, Illustrated by Daniella Manini
Embarking on an adventure that most only fantasize about, Liz Clark set sail from Santa Barbara, California, ten years ago as captain of her forty-foot sailboat, Swell, headed south toward the wonder and learning that lies beyond the unbroken horizon. In true stories overflowing with wild waves and constant challenges, at the whim of the weather, relationships sweet and sour, nature's marvels, and colorful cultures, Liz captures her voyages in gripping detail in this memoir, sharing tales of sailing the high seas, of solitude and surprises, of finding connection to the Earth, and commitment to living in harmony with it. More than ten years, 20,000 miles, countless adventures, and one cat later, she's still out there.
