About the Book
Part sea yarn, part travel guide, part history, part culinary journal, this book tells of the five year voyage around the Mediterranean Sea made by the author and his wife on their sloop Eirene.
I retired in 2006 at age 56 after 31 years as a trial attorney. Since then, my wife and I have been sailing in the Mediterranean Sea for about eight months a years. I now favor bare feet even over boat shoes. When not sailing, we live in Knoxville, Tennessee. We have two grown sons. I grew up in Ohio, went to seminary and law school in Louisville, and lived in Washington, D.C. for 11 years before moving to Knoxville in 1986.
