Description: In the tradition of Kathleen Norris's Cloister Walk, writer and professional small-boat sailor Myron Arms embarks on a voyage both physical and spiritual, seeking to explore the primal beauty of the oceans, and to articulate the sailor's age-old quest to understand his world and himself. As both a Coast Guard-licensed ocean master and a graduate of the Harvard Divinity School, Arms offers lessons learned from a lifelong connection with the sea and with the deeply spiritual mysteries that lie at the heart of the ocean world.

Drawing on the experiences of four decades under sail, he takes his readers to some of the last wild places on Earth, climbing the hills of the North Atlantic in a full gale, watching the flight of seabirds, listening to the night-breath of whales, and pondering the questions that all such encounters inspire. The result is a series of reflections as refreshing as they are wise -- meditations to be read, savored, and read again. What John Muir did for western forests, what Edward Abbey did for the desert, Arms now does for the ocean. In a voice that is reverent, impassioned, and clear-sighted, he celebrates the wilderness he has come to love, mourns its wounds, and demonstrates for all of us its power to heal.
