"Her book is nothing less than a love story for a wooden boat." —Tom Jackson, Woodenboat.
From the cover: "Around-the-world sailor, writer, and traveler Kaci Cronkhite knew better than to buy a wooden boat. But in 2007—smitten by the buxom curves of Pax and inspired by a life in the wind—she did. What transpired after that was a love story, an international mystery, and a seven-year quest. It was an unexpected journey for both author and boat."
Local author and friend of the magazine Kaci Cronkhite's just-released book is receiving rave reviews, and for limited time the copies offered through SCA are SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
Beautifully bound soft cover. 199 pages. Photo and illustrations.
