Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 096144438X, Hardcover)In 1969 the Coon family of Ketchikan, Alaska built a forty eight foot trimaran called Trilogy and sailed it down the coast of North and South America, across to the Galapagos Islands, and from there to the Marquesas and Hawaii. On the course of that twelve thousand mile voyage they forged a family destiny and pursued it to its unpredictable conclusion.
In Jeannette Coon's candid story of this family odyssey, You'll meet unforgettable characters: Skipper Eldon Coon, a Christian and rugged individualist who chases his dream with the dedication of an Old Testament prophet; the rebellious sons caught up in a lark, not realizing that it would set the course of their lives; the teenage daughter swept reluctantly into life-transforming experiences; the runaway cousin who flees the chaos of her life to discover herself on this family journey.
Trilogy takes them into worlds startlingly different from any they've known--scenes of stunning natural beauty; encounters with castaways and drifter, idealists and peasants, human predators and gun-waving authorities; moments of family upheaval and miraculous discovery.
Over time, the sea itself becomes their shelter, a place where the family can live by its own resources, moved forward by the winds of destiny and navigating by faith as they search for a secure harbor and a new home.
Part traveler's tale, part family chronicle, part a record of spiritual awakening, this true story will remind you that everyone's life is an adventure--and that unexpected rewards come to those who act on their dreams.
