Lone Sailors and Spiritual Insights: Cases of Sport and Peril at Sea

Front Cover
E. Mellen Press, 2005 - Social Science - 411 pages
This book examines a number of autobiographical and biographical works, as well as personal interviews, which substantiate the author's thesis that solo sailors, who face peril at sea and come to terms with the sea's partiality and get used to its indifference, can undergo a transformation of self which can lead to what he terms as spiritual purpose or 'moral presence'.
