"Log of the Sloop Corsair" is a must-read for anyone who ever sailed, cruised, or dreamed of doing either. A cross between John Steinbeck and Hunter S. Thompson, Richard Parker "Dick" Grill is truly a man's man on a man's adventure. Both primal and cerebral--Dick started out as a Marine in the Korean War and finished his checkered career as a Nuclear Safety scientist--this journey of self-discovery will resonate in anyone who ever felt adrift in the universe, literally or figuratively. Equal parts scientist and pirate, Dick is above all a self-reliant survivor, funny, sexy, a boon companion for any time spent on salt water. A Midwest boy and self-made man, Dick's story is quintessentially American. Read it, and buy an extra one. You will want to share this book with your best buddy...but always keep one for yourself.
