Publisher's Description

Rich is fifteen, wealthy, and spoiled. Although his parents have given him every material possession a child could want, they have never helped him develop self-discipline or responsibility. When he finds himself in trouble with the law, a judge sends Rich to spend time on a single-masted sailboat, sailing down the northeast coast of the United States with an older skipper who teaches kids like Rich through parables.

Rich discovers that the sailor's world is a microcosm of life and an education in how to live it. A windship is his home, the sea his environment, one over which he has no control. He can only cope with it as it is, and his ability to adapt to the changing sea determines whether he returns safely or doesn't return at all. Rich soon learns that cooperation is critical and that he must trust in God, his fellow sailors, and himself to survive in rough seas both on the ocean and in everyday life.

Through his journey on the sailboat, Rich finds more than an alternative to a juvenile detention facility: he finds his place in the world.
