In Bull Canyon Lin turns to an "adventure on land." This is the story of the four years 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 ceiling, then the floods, then the fires, then the visiting cougar … life in Bull Canyon was daunting and dangerous. Often Lin wondered just what they were doing so far from their customary "home" on the open seas. Bull Canyon joins the annals of great tales of homesteading, told in the warm, funny, and insightful voice of a true storyteller. You can read excerpts from the book at www.linpardey.com. Here is what the first reviewers have to say…
“It’s great. Very very funny and insightful. Captures a time and place.”
Lin and Larry have voyaged more than 200,000 miles together on self-built engine-free wooden boats. Their voyages have taken them around the world, both east-about and west-about, including counter-to-the-prevailing-wind passages south of the great southern capes. The books and DVD programs created by Lin and Larry have been credited with launching thousands of dreams by inspiring and empowering three generations of sailors. In 2010 the Pardeys were awarded The Cruising Club of America’s prestigious Far Horizons Award.
