Alone: The Man Who Braved the Vast Pacific -- & Won
Gerard d’Aboville (au); Paul Theroux (in). This is the incredible story of one heroic man’s battle against almost impossible odds. Gerard d’Aboville was 45 years old when he set out to row across the Pacific Ocean, from west to east, from Japan to the U.S. But the challenge of the Pacific -- twice as vast as the Atlantic & several times as dangerous -- would not be denied. d’Aboville’s rowboat was 26 feet long, with a small watertight living compartment & basic cooking & commun. equipment. In mid-July he set out from Choshi, Japan, & rowed 10-12 hours/day, battling headwinds, a cyclone, & 40-foot waves. Finally, 134 days later, he came ashore at Ilwaco, WA, bruised & battered but unbowed from his battle with the ocean. Photos.
