A real adventure, obviously written by someone with time on the water. Great descriptions, the characterizations of the boring times in slack wind gave the impression of how hard that could be to endure. Monkeys, hogs and rays, as as well as the occasional manatee were all along for the telling. The education on what an ampolleta is and the trick of forecasting a hurricane in the early 16th century were pleasant surprises. Throw in the search for gold and this book holds your attention for the duration.
