Ever since I was seven years old, I have been convinced that one of the fundamental upsides of being alive is that it gives you the chance to do things like sailing across oceans ...When marine biologists Mike Litzow and his partner Alisa make a promise to follow their dream to sail from Alaska to Australia, they agree that they won't leave until their son, Elias, is one year old. When he is nine months, they give up waiting, strap him down and weigh anchor. In his unflinching account of their trip, Mike tells the inspiring story of the stress and exhilaration, the fights and incredible closeness of family life onboard, and the unrelenting fierceness and incredible beauty of the open sea. South From Alaska is a warm, personal and fascinatingly honest account of a family afloat in the Pacific. 'There's nothing better than going on an adventure with your kids. This story should inspire all of us to make our dreams come true.' Jon Faine - broadcaster and author of From Here to There. 'As a sailor who raised his daughter aboard, I was touched by this book. Litzow writes from the heart.' Fatty Goodlander - sailor and writer Follow Mike's further adventures on his blog: http://thelifegalactic.blogspot.com/ Like the book?
