In 2003, casting their fortunes and their lives to the wind, the Ellison family embarked on what they thought would be a one-year voyage on their forty-seven-foot sloop,Promise. Five years and more than 25,000 nautical miles later, the family of four returned to the United States and dry land. In this memoir, authorAlex Ellisonchronicles his family's adventures on the seas. Culled from a detailed daily journal that Ellison began keeping at the onset of the voyage when he was just eight years old,A Star to Sail Her Byreveals his transition from enthusiastic child to capable sailor and reflective young adult. He learned two important lessons as they traveled from port to port: not everything always works the way it'should, and change is really the only thing you can count on. A Top 5 Book Pick YachtingMagazine A Star to Sail Her By is sure to entertain and inspire people who dream of adventure. Jennifer Castle, editor,PBSkids Ellison's earnest, genuine style is reminiscent of Robin Graham's in Dove.
