Don Rothschild's clear voice captures a tone and spirit that will touch the sailor in all of us. A treasure of up close and personal stories from his lifelong pursuit of sailing and the sea.
"What a delightful book. . . . You’ve
nailed the spirit of the cruising sailor through your adventures on a scale we
all can relate to."
—Skip Zahniser, Zahniser’s Yachting Center
"Don’t look for heroic sagas on the
scale of Tales of the Titanic or The Perfect Storm. These yarns
are up close and personal adventures laced with sly humor and served up with a
twist of irony."
—Shirley Levy, Boating columnist
"The balance for the technician and the
landlubber is exquisite and makes it a great read for both. Like the ‘Arabian
Nights’, this is a series of stories that take us on journeys to many
—Renny Severance, Editor Sanibel Islander
"This book should be in every cruiser’s
foc’sl or guest quarters for a rainy afternoon read aboard. I also wanted to
hear more at the end of many chapters. . . ."
—S. A. Metcher, President, The American Nature Study Society
"From the Cockpit of the Rubaiyat
. . . begins on the fresh waters of Lake Erie, flows into tranquil inlets off
the Chesapeake to the unsurpassed romantic Caribbean seas and tradewinds and
finally into the majestic and beautiful Atlantic. Each sailing escapade, and
each boat, bares its own lesson and sea story. In today¹s culture of high
technology and virtual experiences, sea stories are a real treasure for the
non-sailor and sailor alike."
—Dana Hokin, Managing Partner, The Bitter End Yacht Club, BVI
