really liked it
bookshelves: nautical, nonfiction
Read in July, 2009

This was a really short, slightly odd book, but I still liked it. Mostly Gary Paulsen's descriptions about his love for the sea and how boats come alive. I wish the second-to-last chapter had actually been the last, though; it seemed a lot more of a fitting ending.

Quotes Caitlín Liked

Gary Paulsen
“I spent uncounted hours sitting at the bow looking at the water and the sky, studying each wave, different from the last, seeing how it caught the light, the air, the wind; watching patterns, the sweep of it all, and letting it take me.
The sea.”
Gary Paulsen, Caught by the Sea

Gary Paulsen
“...this beginning motion, this first time when a sail truly filled and the boat took life and knifed across the lake under perfect control, this was so beautiful it stopped my breath...”
Gary Paulsen, Caught by the Sea
