Cruise of the Arctic Star
Journey through history with Scott O'Dell, author of such books as Black Pearl, Island of the Blue Dolphins, and Sing Down the Moon, as he and his wife and crew voyage up the coast of California in his cedar-hulled cruiser recalling people and events along the way. The trip begins on a foggy morning from San Diego and ends at the Columbia River in Washington. Learn about such characters as Sir Francis Drake, Jedediah Strong Smith, and the Chumash Indians along with navigation terms and life at sea. Maps found throughout the book will help you keep your bearings on your trip. This true-life story will spark your imagination and your sense of adventure as you travel and learn. ~ Donna
