This narrative begins with a confused and troubled boy at a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game and ends more than six decades later with a content old man experiencing a miracle in Mexico. A Hawaiian beach boy named Boat holds everything together. Boat was a 285-pound Hawaiian man-solid muscle, yet gentle and spiritual. Boat accepted a lost and dejected Baughman as a friend soon after Baughman moved to Hawaii at age ten. Boat saved him, taught him, and nurtured him in a way Baughman's own father was unable to. After Baughman left the islands seven years later, their friendship endured. Baughman's photographic memory has allowed him to recall, virtually verbatim, every significant conversation he had with Boat, and this book is a testament to the profundity of this man with a seemingly simple life. Boat spoke Hawaiian Pidgin English - its unique inflections, lilting cadences, and its wisdom, grace this memoir.
