Stone set off in the summer of 1986 from Camden, Maine, in a 38-foot cutter called Sanderling , heading south. In April 1988, he and his crew completed the 8,000-mile cruise that took them all the way to Rio. Their goal was to assess, from a firsthand perspective, the environmental crisis afflicting the entire Atlantic coast of North and South America. This is his account of that odyssey.

It was an ambitious project--a coastal voyage from Maine to Florida, on to the eastern islands of the Caribbean, to the northern coast of Brazil and thence to Rio de Janiero. The object was to assess the current environmental crisis along the Atlantic seaboard. Stone, author of Dreams of Amazonia and vice-president of the World Wildlife Fund, and crew set out in the 38-foot cutter Sanderling , a gift to the Fund. Here he presents grim evidence of coastal pollution observed throughout the voyage, reports on efforts at improvement and points out the few bright spots. On the Caribbean leg of the voyage, Sanderling anchored on Cuba's north shore and touched remote islands where Columbus reputedly made landfall. While the text leans more toward environmental issues than to sailing, sailing buffs will delight in Stone's log of the 16-day, arduous passage from Barbados to Brazil's northern coast. Illustrated.
