Told through the words of a noted circumnavigator with evocative photos throughout. High latitude sailing at its best. With little more than a strong belief in himself and his dream, Croatian sailor Mladen Sutej set out from his homeland on an different type of circumnavigation of the world?from top to bottom. His expedition would take him, an intrepid crew, and the seaworthy steel ketch, Cigra, through the Northwest Passage, across the top pf Canada and Alaska, then to the great Southern Ocean off Cape Horn, and the perilous Antarctic ice.
