An impressive small boat voyage and true story. Stephen Ladd and partner Ginny adapt a 2 masted trailer sailor that draws only 9 inches for a “voyage” along the coastline and rivers of South America. They row and sail, exploring the Amazon and nineteen other rivers with portages between. Making their own maps, they find the mysterious Casiquiare, a navigable connector between the Orinoco and the Amazon, and transit the Mato Grosso, the world’s largest swamp. Between storms and robberies at knifepoint they find time to get married and have a baby, culminating in a shipwreck in the Dominican Republic.
