Keith Stewart is an ordinary man. However, one day he is called upon to undertake an extraordinary task. When his sister's boat is wrecked in the Pacific, he becomes trustee for his little niece. In order to save her from destitution he has to embark on a 2,000 mile voyage in a small yacht in inhospitable waters. His adventures and the colourful characters he meets on his journey make this book a marvellous tale of courage and friendship.

Review:

"Something about this author's calm, deliberate style creates unexpected excitement... we are warmed by the justice and sheer pleasure of it" (Independent)

"Nevil Shute made me yearn for a faithful, plodding, Shute-type of man. I imagined us trekking across the Australian outback, finding a run-down hamlet, and then transforming it together until death or flood parted us" (The Times)

Book Description:

A classic adventure from the author of A Town Like Alice and On the Beach.
