The five-year voyage

by Stephen Ladd | 05 April 2022
PAPERBACK
Categories: Travel Boating
From the author of Three Years in a 12-Foot Boat comes an expedition of even grander scope, this time with Ginny, his brave sweetheart. Together they fashion a tiny craft in which they row and sail from Florida to the Caribbean along the coast of Central and South America. Though storm-battered and robbed at knife-point, they ascend the Orinoco River to a remote steam connecting with the Amazon. They descend this to Manaus, then climb another tributary south through Bolivia. After a portage they transit the world's largest swamp, then float down the Paraguay to Argentina. Returning via other rivers, they pause to have a son. Steve sails homeward alone to safeguard baby George, but shipwrecks in surf. Written with humor and keen observation, this is the honest account of an unprecedented odyssey.
