Publisher's Summary

Christian Beamish, a notable writer for The Surfer's Journal, has done what every guy since Huck Finn has dreamed of doing: making his own boat and sailing it to paradise, with adventures along the way.

Christian Beamish, a former editor at The Surfer's Journal, envisioned a low-tech, self-reliant exploration for surf along the coast of North America, using primarily clothes and instruments available to his ancestors, and the 18-foot boat he would build by hand in his garage. How the vision met reality - and how the two came to shape each other - places The Voyage of the Cormorant in the great American tradition of tales of life at sea, and what it has to teach us.

Well read and written

thoroughly enjoyed listening to Christian read his adventure in the boat he had made. His voice grew on me And his skill at writing made the scenes vivid. I especially liked his description of being rescued from possible tragedy at the island by a chance encounter with fishermen who were obviously sent by God. I will buy three copies for my sons, if there available in paperback.
