Description: "The world is made up of fools and philosophers, seducers and seers and all degrees in between. We have them all about us on land; and because of the endless presence of all sorts of folk about us we often fail to appreciate the good, denigrate the bad, cry with the sad and laugh with those who leaven our lot with the human comedy.

"There are too many of them on land to sort out and, anyway, we are inured to their uniqueness by their madding presence. You need distance from our crowded world to really appreciate the panoply of humanity with which we are blessed and cursed". And the best distancing, according to author Reese Palley, is to go sailing across a great sea.

Unlikely People is a tribute to the unique men and women that give up the shore and take to the seas. After thirty years of sailing aboard Unlikely VII he has met devils and saints, fools and philosophers, and their stories are told with humor and charm in Palley's inimitable style. Notable characters include sailing legend Tristan Jones, lunatics in Colombia and The Dumbest Sailor in the World. A must-read for all Reese Palley fans.
