Graham, Robin Lee with Gill, Derek L. T.  
Dove
 Picture
Publisher: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1972 New York.
ISBN: 006011603x Book. Book condition: Good. Good. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall First edition (stated). "Dove promises to be the year's true adventure-romance saga for thousands of readers. It is a story of amazing daring, endurance, and joy. On July 27, 1965, Robin Lee Graham, aged 16, set sail from San Pedro, California, in his twenty-four-food sloop, Dove, alone except for two kittens named Suzette and Joliette. Five years and 33, 000 miles later, he had accomplished what few would dare dream of, much less attempt, and along the way discovered worlds about himself and this globe. Robin's extraordinary solo voyage to freedom and independence took him through the South Pacific to the samoan Islands, the Fijis, Guadalcanal, New Guinea, Australia, the Indian Ocean, around the Cape of Good Hope, up the African coast and across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean, to South America, through the Panama Canal (after buying an new and bigger boat) to the Galapagos, then north to California and his home port. He weathered tropical storms and agonizing doldrums, lost his mast off Madagascar, was swept overboard as he tried to pull the sails and rigging back into the boat, was nearly run down by a freighter one night, and battled with a cosmic loneliness and near-despair. In the Fiji Islands, however, the character of his voyage was drastically changed when he met a beautiful girls from California. Like Robin, Patti Ratteree was on a journey, hitchhiking and working her way around the world, searching for a life far different from the one she had left behind in suburban California. Ideally suited, she and Robin fell in love and spent idyllic weeks cruising the gemlike Fiji Islands, diving for shells among the coral reefs and in the sparkling clear lagoons, fishing, living off the land, constantly thrilled by the beauties of the natural world and the kindness and generosity of the people they met. But Robin had to keep on with his solo voyage, and painfully they separated, not sure they would ever meet again. What happened to each of them after this separation, how they eventually got back together in South Africa (after Dove was reported lost at sea), got married twice, explored the Caribbean and the fabulous Galapagos Islands together, had a baby, and headed for their new life homesteading in Montana, provides the exciting and romantic heart of this unique tale of youthful quest and adventure. Illustrated with 32 pages of full color photographs. 199 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition.
