In this fact-based adventure, Takashi, a young Japanese boy is shanghaied aboard the Sindia, a sailing ship bound for New York in 1901. As the Sindia heads for Cape Horn, Takashi's love of sailing overcomes his homesickness and the hardships of a long journey... but nothing could prepare him for the climactic conclusion of his voyage along the Atlantic coast. This is a fictional adventure story based on an actual shipwreck that occurred off the New Jersey Shore.
Illustrated, with nautical glossary, and a historical account with photographs of the actual shipwreck.

Lucinda Hathaway (''Cinda'' to her friends) lived for many years on an island, Ocean City, New Jersey, where she became intrigued with the Sindia, the steel bark that ran aground in 1901 and was the inspiration for this book. She has traveled all over the world, sometimes by ship, and can often be found sailing her sloop Eventide. She and her husband Jack split their time between Camden, Maine, where her family has vacationed for four decades, and Longboat Key, Florida -- a quiet island in the Gulf of Mexico. Cinda is happy to share her love of the sea and our natural world with an audience of children. She regularly visits schools and libraries to explore Takashi's adventure and lessons. Takashi's Voyage is her first book. In her companion book, 'Round The World: Takashi Sails Home, Takashi sails home to Japan aboard a Maine Downeaster.Review:
A glimpse of life at sea through the eyes of a Japanese boy shanghaied aboard the Sindia -- and also a gentle lesson in acceptance. --The Philadelphia Inquirer
Recommended for young readers, the attractively bound book may instead lodge in parents' permanent collections. ...Takaski's Voyage is a gem of a souvenir for landlubbers and for coastal dwellers. --The SandPaper
