CRUISING THE WEST: FIFTY YEARS OF SAIL presents a fascinating selection of voyages and observations which the Djoses experienced during the past half century on the water.
This book recalls some of the most comic, memorable, and challenging of those moments, whether long ago when they were first married or during the last quarter century when they explored the Pacific Northwest, Canada, southern California, Mexico, and the Great Southwest.
Each chapter carries the reader a little further down the years as it describes their many adventures and misadventures and the fascination of sail.
Most of all, this book is about their love of freedom and the sheer joy of sailing. For Matts and Jeanine, this book is a celebration; for it is about love and the passage of years, the chance to take the full measure of life, and the challenge of growing a bit wiser along the way.
