Book Title: “Waterways: Sailing the Southeastern Coast”
Author: Dr. Jennifer Frick-Ruppert, Brevard College
When Jennifer Frick-Ruppert and her husband set sail for the first time in their newly purchased 37-foot sailboat, they were hoping to leave colder climes behind, learn something about sailing, and get away from the daily grind. What they didn’t expect was that nature would become a partner in their journey and a main character in their story, not simply a backdrop for their adventure. Combining insights from ecology and sailing, she blends travel narrative and nature writing to delight and educate.She invites us to meditate on the relationship between ourselves and our surroundings. More than just a memoir of learning to sail, Waterways is a book about learning to better see the world around us.
