Product description

Now in paperback, Daniel Robb’s Sloop proves he “is a craftsman… with words as well as with a hammer, as he constructs a charming tale that both details the technical nature of boatbuilding and captures the essence of the past, present, and future of a New England maritime community” (Publishers Weekly).

• Interest in the environment and ecology: Daniel robb decided to restore his family’s well-worn wooden sailboat in appreciation for its craftsmanship and out of respect for the environment for which it was intended. Sloop’s tribute to the simple life and one’s environment will resonate with sailing enthusiasts and anyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship.

• Timeless values: robb voices an ethic in which things are valued and appreciated, especially well-designed objects that still have years of useful life in them. While die-hard sailors or woodworking fanatics will love this book, robb’s skill as a writer also makes this a fascinating read for anyone. His humorous account of his on-the-job learning experience and of the eccentric characters who share his values and helped him will delight readers.

“Robb writes of his painstaking restoration of a rotted 12½- foot herreshoff that had floated on memory and emotion, and finally again on water.…a gem.” —David Mehegan, The Boston Globe

“Whether you’re an old-time boat builder, a wooden boat enthusiast, or simply someone who appreciates words woven together masterfully, you’ll enjoy Sloop.” —Kathleen Szmit, Barnstable Patriot

Author of Crossing the Water, Daniel Robb has been an editor of academic journals, a teacher, a political consultant on a congressional campaign, and a proprietor of a literary services business. He has also worked at sea on schooners, taught sailing, and raced in national competitions. Robb lives in Pelham, Massachusetts.



Product description

It's 1920's Baltimore. Prohibition. Those who sell and distribute liquor can become rich — or dead if the mob doesn't get their cut. The gangsters have taken over, and in organized crime the one weapon valued more than a Tommy gun is a mage. Welcome to the world of White Lightning.

A moonshine runner.
A mage for the mob.
And more misfortune than a blow-down at the speakeasy.

Hattie Malloy has two goals in life—get the hootch from warehouse to seller, and make sure no one finds out she can conjure illusions. But when her shipment of rum is attacked by pirates on the Chesapeake Bay and she needs to call on the mob for help, those two goals collide. Suddenly the safety of her family and friends rests on her helping a group of gangsters that she wants nothing to do with.

The mob is the only family that time pincher Vincent Calendo has ever known. When his boss Vito says he wants to expand his “stable” of mages, Vincent is tasked with finding unaffiliated, or free, pinchers and bringing them into the fold—willingly or not.

Can Hattie keep her talents a secret from Vincent or will she lose the freedom her parents have sacrificed everything to give her?

Wooden Boats

Published by Penguin 2002

ISBN 9781440684159,1440684154
336 pages

There are fewer than 10,000 wooden boats in America, but the circulation of WoodenBoat magazine exceeds 180,000. What is it about these boats that has captured the popular imagination? With his "lively blend of reportage [and] reflection" (Los Angeles Times), Michael Ruhlman sets off for a renowned boatyard in Martha's Vineyard to follow the construction of two boats-Rebecca, a 60-foot modern pleasure schooner, and Elisa Lee, a 32-foot powerboat. Filled with exquisite details and stories of the sea, this exciting exploration of a nearly forgotten craft and the colorful personalities involved will enthrall wooden boat owners as well as craftspeople of every stripe, nature enthusiasts, and fans of compelling nonfiction.


Northland, New Zealand — Northland, New Zealand

Just when we thought we had travelled a good distance around the world we had a 9 hour journey to New Zealand ahead of us. We had a brief stop over in Sydney and after a sleepless night on the plane we landed in Auckland late afternoon. We took the Airbus to the city ($16 each one way, and it only takes less than half an hour) and walked a short distance to our first accommodation, a backpackers lodge in Ponsonby. Ponsonby is a 20-30min walk from the city centre but we loved the area itself. There is a long trendy high street full of shops, cafes and restaurants and we had some of our best meals there. We only spent 2 nights in Auckland as we would be back here in a week for the arrival of my parents who were visiting us for 2 weeks. For the week ahead, we planned to visit the Northland, hiring a car and exploring the key areas we had heard about from friends and through online research. The first stop on our agenda was Paihia, sitting on the east coast in the Bay of Islands. Hiring a car was very easy. We even got slightly sun burnt on our first day exploring the city, despite it also being fairly cloudy. The drive to Paihia was around 2. 5 hours with a stop in Whangerei. The drive was brilliant and was our first experience of seeing the beauty of New Zealand's countryside and coast. Whangerei made for a good stop over as we visited a stunning waterfall (Whangerei Falls) which you can also swim in if you dared to bare the cold waters. Paihia is a small touristy town which mainly consists of one main road along the coast with a row of shops, motels and cafes on one side and the sea and a narrow beach on the other. It seemed fairly new as the room was very modern and spotless. It sat above the shops in the main high street and the communal kitchen and living room had huge glass windows overlooking the sea and horizon. Again we had 2 nights here, meaning one whole day to explore the area. You can swim in the sea and there are many boat trips that will take you around the bay. The weather was warm but cloudy whilst we were there, so we opted to visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds close by. It was an amazing experience and well worth the entry fee. We learnt about a very important part of New Zealand and British history. An agreement was signed here by the British Crown and Maori people in 1840, which enabled the British settlers and Maori locals to live together in New Zealand under a common set of laws or agreements. We didn't know a lot about New Zealand before we arrived so it was great to learn about such an important part of their history, especially as it involved Britain. Part of the tour also included a traditional Maori performance which was a brilliant welcome to New Zealand and really entertaining. After Paihia, we drove to the top of the north island, Cape Reinga before heading to our next accommodation situated on the west coast of the northland. Cape Reinga has stunning views of the coast and you can enjoy a short walk to the lighthouse. You can also see where the Tasman sea meets with the Pacific ocean causing the crashing of waves as they meet from two directions. We then headed to Ahipara, a small town situated along 90 mile beach. I used Air BnB and we stayed in a lady's house which overlooks the beach. It had a wooden deck that faced the beach and we could see quite far along in both directions. The host was so welcoming and friendly (and made amazing coffee in the morning. Our experience with Air BnB has been a positive one so far and is great for travellers on a budget. There isn't too much to do in the area that doesn't come with a fairly high cost. It is possible to rent quad bikes and drive along the beach or even partake in horse riding tours. We made good use of our day and firstly went for a walk along the beach to Shipwreck Bay, where in low tide, you can see the top of a shipwreck. We then got into the car and took a trip to Bay of Plenty, about an hours drive. It was amazing to explore more of the coast, and on a hot sunny day. The host of the BnB recommended a popular fish and chip restaurant by the sea in Maunganui which was yummy and had lovely views as you ate. It turned out to be a day well spent and at a cheap cost. The drive back south consisted of a one night stop over back in Whangerei, before arriving back in Auckland the day of my parents arrival.
