Newspapers carried news stories of this Estonian youth and his 27-foot boat, touching these shores after Atlantic voyages. Now here is his story -- from his boyhood and youth spent on masted vessels, to the ownership of his own boat and his endless craving for the open sea and distant ports. Good human interest material, but of primary interest to those who love sailing and the sea. Should have a plus sale for elder boys. Good fun reading -- but not an essential book.
