This is a wonderful book. A true story. A picture of three plus
years in the lives of two pretty unusual people. It is also the story
of others like them who make the choice to live around the globe
and not on a tiny spot such as most of us choose. There is humor, adventure
and grief. There is fear and the joy that comes with conquering
what seems to be insurmountable odds against these two travelers.

If you are looking for fine literature, look somewhere else.
This is not the work of a practiced author. This is a book for someone
who is looking for a good story well told.

Here you will find not only word pictures of places most of us only long to visit,
but you will find actual pictures. There is a story to be had from every port
along the way. You will meet the people they met, and learn those stories too.

What is it like in Tahiti? What are the people like? What do they eat, wear
or care about? Here is where you will find it. Have you ever dreamed of Island life?
sailing the ocean in a beautiful craft? Living life on your own terms? This is the story
of two people who did just that. Only much to their surprise, their own terms had to be
adjusted on an almost daily basis.

Amy, is veterinarian in the book. She is typically caring.. but has a wide streak of
pragmatism that shows up now and then. Her husband the boat builder is the dreamer,
I think? This book is far from typical. Just have a look at the cover, which gives the tiniest of hints
to the unusual adventure that you will find within.
