Praise

Seaworthy is an impressive achievement, powerful in drama and rich in detail in describing the rafting career of William Willis, a solitary sailor on the vast Pacific committed to proving himself under the most forbidding circumstances possible. His exploits were sometimes heartrending, sometimes ludicrous, and sometimes absurd, but Pearson’s narrative, like his prose, never overreaches, never abandons a cool objectivity in relating incidents of heroism no less than those of a vainglorious eccentricity or appalling stupidity. Unfailingly wise, often funny, and always penetrating, Seaworthy is no less entertaining and always enjoyable.” —W. T. Tyler, author of The Man Who Lost the War and The Consul’s Wife
