The main character of this book is a sailboat named "Flying Star." It is written by her owner with love. But it is more than a book about sailing and sailboats, it is a travel guide for boaters and "land lovers" alike, as Mr. Morgan takes his readers with him as he and Flying Star visit interesting and exciting places. Flying Star's life began with tragedy when members of her crew were lost in a hurricane, but she managed to survive and go on to live a full and exciting life. The story is a delightful mix of anecdotes and advice that is experienced, witty and well-written. It eloquently captures Mr. Morgan's passion for sailing, sailboats and travel.
The handy resource list included at the end of the book is very helpful to travelers by boat or land. A great book for sailors, travelers and those who just dream about sailing away and visiting fun and exciting places.
