My review of T.R. Pearson’s Seaworthy: Adrift with William Willis in the Golden Age of Rafting appeared on PopMatters yesterday. Click here to read the review in its entirety because this is an astounding book that details the true story of a single man who sailed a raft from South America to Australia when he was well-past retirement age. He refused help, drank cups of seawater, and treated hernias by dangling himself upside down from the mast. It is an unbelievable story and Pearson, in his first book of nonfiction, renders it perfectly.
