Review

For more than 50 years, Sharie and Allen Farrell have lived a life at
sea, cruising the Pacific Ocean in pursuit of adventure in vessels that
have included a Chinese junk, a double-ended ketch, and a splendid
schooner. Their kindness to others is legendary. By freeing themselves
of the things they did not need, and by building the vessels of their
dreams, this nomadic couple pointed themselves toward a life of freedom,
achievement, and happiness. We are in their debt, and that of the
author, for this delightful and well-illustrated book.
