Description: When mapmakers of the distant past came to the end of the known world, they would inscribe "Here There Be Sea Monsters". When Tori Murden McClure attempted to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean in a 23 - foot plywood boat with no motor or sail, she had no idea what kind of monsters she would find. Despite deep solitude and perilous conditions, McClure was a loner determined to prove what one person with a mission can do. But when she is brought to her knees by the worst hurricane season in the history of the North Atlantic, she must signal for help and go home in what she thinks is a disgrace.
With a very sense of humor and a strong voice, McClure gives readers a true memoir of an explorer who maps her world with rare emotional honesty.
