Bucking the Tides, by David Buckman

A tale of discovery, making do, and muddling along the wild New England and Bay of Fundy coast in the tradition of Huck Finn, Ratty, Mole and Thoreau. Come aboard the sloop “Leigh”, a wreck of a $400 sailboat that leaks like a White House aide and join a crew as green as grass as they adventure the length of this dramatic seaboard.
