9780684803388: Kayaking the Vermilion Sea: Eight Hundred Miles Down the Baja

With two slender sixty-pound kayaks, a ten-pound medical kit, twenty pounds of books, triple-digit temperatures, and no contact with the outside world, Jonathan and Deborah Waterman spent two months paddling through the violent tides and storms that define the mythically charged Sea of Cortes. Amid the lore and romantic past of the Baja they discovered that what began as a mutual exploration would soon become an unforgettable test of will.

Exhilarating and lyrical, filled with images of death, beauty, and adventure, this paradisiacal journey depicts the past and present of a legendary body of water -- and the struggle of a man and a woman to find each other.

About the Author:

Jonathan Waterman is the author of nine books, has made four television films, and works as a freelance author and filmmaker. In 2004, his writing about the Arctic won the prestigious National Endowment of the Arts Literary Fellowship.

From Library Journal:

Following a rigorous climb of Mt. Denali (In the Shadow of Denali, LJ 3/1/94), Waterman and his new wife, Deborah, decided sunshine was in order and drove south. Their goal: to kayak one of the lowest points on Earth, the arid coastline of the legendary Sea of Cortes off Baja California, Mexico. They chronicle their two-month voyage here in brief chapters detailing their adventures. Quotations from Spanish explorers and missionaries tell the often depressing story of the Baja natives. Waterman depicts the environmental debacle of a sea that is overfished while laws to protect it ignored. The couple struggles to survive the raging waters and their rocky relationship, battling storms and sea lions one moment, their stressed emotions the next. This book is a pleasant addition to the sparse collection of literature on this subject. Recommended for travel and Southwest collections.
