In 2007, Roz Savage set out to row 8,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean—alone. Despite having successfully rowed across the Atlantic the previous year, the Pacific presented the former office worker with unprecedented challenges and overpowering currents—both in the water and within herself.
Crossing Earth’s largest ocean alone might seem a long way removed from everyday life, yet the lessons Roz learned about the inner journey, the ocean, and the world are relevant to all of us. She shares tales of the ups and downs of her voyage across the waves, while offering insights on how to find happiness through a meaningful and rewarding life.
"[Savage's] British accent adds a personal touch to her account of the joys and challenges of undertaking such a big trip. This first-person account displays her intimate maritime knowledge, as conveyed in the technical details of her trip." (AudioFile)

Too long, too worthy, and inadequately narrated

An incredible journey
A very well narrated reading of Roz's incredible tale. Her very honest and humble recounting of the journey almost makes rowing solo across the Pacific sound easy! A highly recommended listen for anyone interested in Adventure / Environmentalism.
