Subject: Re: Books by Travel Writers
I forgot a recent book that is truly an adventure: Maiden Voyage - by Tania Abei It's about an 18-yr-old young woman, (unsettled in life) who is a bike messenger in NYC. Her father, wanting her to push her into adulthood, offers her a 4-yr college education or her own seaworthy sailboat that she must skipper around the world... alone! She takes the latter offer and the adventure begins. It's about her coming of age, her fight for survival and her adventures (albeit terrifying ones at times) - but throughout this it's truly armchair travelling - a real treat! Susie - Newton, MA
