Product description

Review

If the story sounds familiar, it should. Colin Angus documented the Atlantic voyage in Beyond the Horizon . . . Here, however, Julie Angus offers the female perspective and draws on her background as a molecular biologist to infuse her tale with statistics about the changing ocean environment . . . Angus writes with such good humour and honesty . . . that any overlap is soon forgotten . . . and you can't help but admire her candour. —Outpost Magazine

(2008-11-04)

Telling a classic survival story from a feminine perspective, Angus's narrative is a first-hand account of waters most people will never visit. —Toronto Star

(2008-11-07)

Rowboat in a Hurricane . . . describes with dismay and alarm the amount of trash floating in the water, most of it plastic . . . The voyage reinforced Angus's sense of the interconnection of land and sea, of how the health of life on land depends on the vitality of the oceans . . . This book is a testament both to human courage and to human destructiveness. Angus deftly weaves personal detail into the story, fleshing out her small cast of characters. —

While I'm on the subject of impressive women . . . Julie became the first woman to row (with Colin) across the Atlantic Ocean from mainland to mainland . . . The Vancouver-Island resident has written about that trip in her new book, Rowboat in a Hurricane. It's a fascinating read from a woman who didn't discover the outdoors until she was 21, and who still claims that she's 'not an adventurer.' —Explore Magazine

(2008-11-26)

When Julie Angus . . . takes to the sea, she dives in deep, as evidenced by her 145-day journey by rowboat across the Atlantic Ocean. Angus's slow-boat venture enabled her to explore the ocean ecosystem up close and chronicle the once-abundant species that are now faced with the threat of devastation. —Granville Magazine

(2009-02-17)

Her book, Rowboat in a Hurricane . . . is an absorbing and inspirational read about their cramped and bone-wearying self-funded sojourn . . . Like many other adventurers before her, Angus bravely sacrificed a host of human comforts to give us a glimpse into an experience most of us wouldn't dare dream of. At the same time, she humbly inspires us to make a small effort to reverse the tide. —Ottawa Citizen

(2009-05-08)

Rowboat in a Hurricane is filled with engaging and insightful personal, historical and scientific anecdotes. The tales are harrowing. —Calgary Herald

(2009-06-26)
