In addition, he wrote several non-fiction books with nautical, historical, and health-related themes.

Lecain Smith I highly recommend LeCain’s invitation to readers of all ages to travel the high seas with Chowder. Reading Chowder’s log will make you laugh, wonder, learn, and long to begin such an adventure yourself. And not only that; it will also provide you with some beautiful words of wisdom such as these, “No matter how much you prepare for things, the unexpected can happen. There is always an element of risk. So it is best to stay positive, kind, and brave, while having some knowledge of how to care for yourself. That’s my advice to other cats considering careers as traveling mariners.”

Wisdom for us all I should think. Shared with humor and an openness to wonder. What more could one ask for in the times in which we live?
