Review:

"A first rate, quietly enthralling account othat belongs on the shelf with Theroux's Happy Isles of Oceania, Raban's sailings, and the work of landlubber Chatwin." Christopher Buckley, The New York Times Book Review

"[A]n old fashioned story of personal adventure that probes its own themes with subversive intelligence." The New York Times

"If a klutz like Patterson can sail to the South Seas, so can you. But writing about it this well is something else again." Outside
