Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
After losing a leg, Jones, a Welsh adventurer, sets out to cross the Isthmus of Kra in Thailand. He assembles a crew consisting of three handicapped Thai youths and a young German college student. Along the way, the intrepid journeyers use courage and determination to overcome language and physical barriers. At the story's beginning, one expects a melodramatic, bleeding-heart saga, yet this is not the case. Armchair sailors will cheer the crew as they sail the 38-foot, hardwood boat Henry Wagner through the Kra (aided, in one instance, by an elephant). This is a warm, human adventure. Recommended especially for Jones's fans.-- Lorene Nemecek, Marlboro Cty. Lib., Bennettsville, S.C.
