"Always Another Horizon is well written and a delightful way to spend a winter's evening or a rainy day."
-Santana Magazine

Full of rich detail and intriguing insight, Always Another Horizon: A Journey Around the World tells the story of one couple's voyage around the globe.

For nearly eight years, author Tina Olton and her husband, Steve Salmon, sailed around the world on their forty-foot, ocean-going sailboat, Another Horizon. In that time, they traveled 45,000 miles, visited sixty-one countries, and crossed three oceans as well as countless seas, canals, lakes, and rivers.

From Berkeley, California, the couple cast off their dock lines to head west through the Golden Gate. The whole world was before them-the ultimate traveler's dream. From the rich beauty of French Polynesia on Easter Sunday to the whitewashed beaches of Greece, Olton and Salmon embraced the world and its diversity.

But the voyage also forced the couple to examine the limits of their determination, their ability to endure hardship, their tolerance for other people-regardless of behavior or beliefs-and their good will toward each other. Olton and Salmon soon realized that the journey would have a profound impact on their lives-or bring them to their knees.
