Airborne: A Sentimental Journeyby William F. Buckley Jr.
AIRBORNE is William F. Buckley, Jr.'s description of his sail across the wide Atlantic with his son and five friends. The trip, for 15 years a dream, for 15 months a planned operation, was always a risk. One doesn't set out haphazardly in a small sailboat to cross 4,400 miles of ocean. Buckley's account of perils is, as one might expect, instructive, nonchalant and terrifying.
