When a Cowgirl Goes to Sea (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


How does a ranch girl from Oklahoma wind up in her mid-30s on the deck of a pitching sailboat in the Tasman Sea, singlehanding in the Indian Ocean, and completing a circumnavigation by the time she's 40? When a Cowgirl Goes to Sea tells the story of Kaci Cronkhite's passage from saddling horses as a pre-teen, to her first glimpse of the ocean at 21, a first sail at 31, followed by a six-year circumnavigation. Cronkhite's trajectory to the ocean includes experiences with influential sailors in her life, many of them women who have dared-and continue to dare-the ocean. Cronkhite's love of sailing is intimately linked to her early love of horses, which she poetically explains in When a Cowgirl Goes to Sea.
