“What I enjoyed most about this book was the great mixture of wide-eyed enthusiasm the Beaches had for the places they’ve visited and the people they have met, and the hard-core realism of the day-to-day grimness of the boat life.
I have greatly enjoyed reading this well-balanced and thoughtful true-life story, as would, I believe, any reader who enjoys a good travel story and a well-written adventure.”

Olivera Baumgartner-Jackson, Reader Views

“It will totally consume your life from beginning to end with its down to earth story of two people’s love of adventure and a desire to experience firsthand the excitement of getting to know the world. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves adventure and people.” 

Dorothy Hensley Whitten, Assistant Editor, The Golden Age of Eagles

Written in letter form to friends and family, readers will have a sense of having been along for the ride as stowaways.” 

Margaret Barno, The Galveston County Daily News

“A fascinating read that will inspire many to potentially make their own trip.” 

Helen Dumont, Midwest Book Review

“This is an entertaining story and a great look at how two non-sailors with a dream circumnavigated the world.”
