A PERSONAL NOTE
Just writing these books scared me. I no longer want to go far into the ocean in a sailboat. I'll never float on a raft at sea. Imagine having to catch sea birds and eat them to survive. No thank you. And outer space? Not me. I have endless admiration for the brave souls who dare to travel into space, but I plan to keep my feel right here on Earth. The amazing thing is that all of these adventurers survived. Researching how they did that fascinated me. I hope it intrigues you, too.
