“I have been waiting thirty years for this book. When I first heard of Ed Gillet’s heroic paddle [from California] to Hawaii, I was thrilled and inspired in my own traveling. But this is much more than a book about a kayak journey. It is that great thing in travel—a brave quest, the solitary traveler turning his back on the cynics, and heading into a turbulent sea in a small boat, and finding landfall. It is a great metaphor for human endeavor. ‘Never before, never since’ indeed. But Ed Gillet is that rare creature—a modest man and also a hero.”—Paul Theroux
