Internationally famous with her husband Larry for their sailing adventures and expertise, Lin Pardey turns here to an adventure on land - the four years that the couple spent far from the sea, building the boat of their dreams in California's remote Bull Canyon. First there were the rats in the pantry, then the floods, then the fires, then the visiting cougar . life in Bull Canyon was daunting and dangerous. Often Lin wondered just what in the world they were doing so far from their customary home on the open seas. Bull Canyon joins the canon of great tales of homesteading, told in the warm, funny, and insightful voice of a true storyteller.
