Dark Wind: A Survivor's Tale of Love and Loss
Dark Wind A Survivor's Tale of Love and Loss Author:Gordon Chaplin In 1992 Gordon Chaplin and Susan Atkinson set off from the Mosquito Coast in a thirty-six-foot sailboat. Behind them were the choices they had made--to leave their spouses and families and live life together on the edge. Ahead of them was the gleaming Pacific, schools of dolphins and flying fish, and days marked by the rising and setting of the ... more »sun. They had an intense romance, fueled by their love of the sea, for adventure, and for risk. Then, in a hidden paradise called Wotho atoll, a dark wind caught up with Chaplin and Atkinson, and plunged them into a horrific, tragic night.
Chaplin looks back at the forces that drove them to Wotho atoll, at the choices they made, the things that might have changed their fate, and at his own culpability in the disaster. Both an adventure tale and a cry of the heart, Dark Wind is a pulse-pounding tale of the sea and a haunting voyage of the human conscience--a powerful and truly unforgettable work.
