9781611451061: Across the Savage Sea: The Epic Journey of the First Woman to Row Across the North Atlantic

Over the last century only six men had defied the power of nature and successfully rowed across the Atlantic from west to east. Maud Fontenoy, a 2005 Time (Europe) Hero, changed that forever when she became the first woman to do so. In 2003 Fontenoy, a young woman and seasoned mariner, set out from Newfoundland in her twenty-four-foot-long boat, Pilot, to row across the North Atlantic. Her goal: to prove that a woman could do what men once believed to be impossible. It became a journey both far more harrowing than even she had imagined and one full of unexpected wonders. Her extraordinary story continues to inspire.

About the Author:

Maud Fontenoy was born to the sea, having lived on her parents’ fifty-five-foot schooner for the first fifteen years of her life. When she accomplished her miraculous crossing, she was twenty-five years old. On March 26, 2005, she became the first woman to row solo across the South Pacific. She lives in France.

Review:

“Fontenoy’s feats hark back to a simpler time of personal strength, resilience and stamina — lots of it.” (Time Europe)
